Links We Know You’ll Love

June 16, 2011

It’s been a while since we’ve given some link love over here, so we thought we would gather a few of our favorite book-related posts to share with our readers. This is what we’ve been reading late into the night (online, at least!)

A glowing review of one of our favorite middle grade novels (and this year’s Newbery Award winner) Moon Over Manifest by tween and young adult librarian GreenBeanTeenQueen.

Kidliterate found The Emerald Atlas “unputdownable!” (And we agree!)

The authors over at YA Highway share a great round-up of responses from authors, bloggers and teens to the now infamous Wall Street Journal article entitled “Darkness too Visible” about whether young adult fiction is too dark for teens to read.

Mamba Point author Kurtis Scaletta wrote a great op-ed piece for From the Mixed-Up Files on how kids connect to books, through characters, not subjects.

A fantastic Egmont author, Micol Ostow, interviewed The Lucky Kind author Alyssa Sheinmel on her book, her voice, and her favorite literary bad boys over at The Contemps. (And if you missed our interview of Alyssa, you can read it here.)

The New York Times loved Jane Goodall’s picture book biography The Watcher, as well as its literary pair, Me…Jane.

If you’re a parent, you have probably seen the internet children’s book sensation making the rounds, Go the F**k to Sleep. But is this book closely based on children’s book classic It’s Time to Sleep, My Love?

If you’re a blogger and would like to share a post with our readers about Random House books or topics you think children’s book lovers would enjoy reading, feel free to email it to us for inclusion in future links posts (we plan to do them much more regularly than we have in the past!), post it to our Facebook wall, or tweet it to us. We love getting to know new (to us) book blogs!
