Betsy's SLJ Article


Gorgeous bloggers grace the November 2009 cover of School Library Journal!

Betsy took on the challenge of creating a list of ten of the top children’s lit blogs and did a grand job.  I am thrilled to be one of the bloggers quoted in the body of the article which does a nice job of showing how children’s lit blogging has grown and evolved in the last few years while emphasizing that blogs and review journals remain completely different beasts.

Welcome any new readers who journeyed from that article!  Good to have you hear.  Feel free to put your feet up, hog the comfy chair, and read.

  1. I just checked out this article. Thanks for posting! As a grad student studying to be a Library Media Specialist (especially at the elementary level), these blogs are right up my alley!


  2. Great! Glad that it’s a list you can use. Check out the comments section for more blog suggestions. Betsy had a tough job with just picking ten!


  3. We could not get past the front cover …. sitting in a bar with drinks in hand?! totally inappropriate and unprofessional. This journal photo has been circulating around here as a textbook example of what NOT to do.


    1. Since this is a journal for librarians, who are adults, what makes it so inappropriate? This is not a journal for teens or that teens would ever pick up and read.
