Welcome to the November 2008 edition of carnival of children's literature.
The theme for this carnival is The Gift of Reading. As the holiday season soon approaches, people will start planning their holiday celebrations and gifts for their loved ones. I felt the Gift of Reading is the perfect theme for the November carnival -- a well-chosen book is a wonderful gift, especially to a young reader.
One of the reasons I blog about our favorite books is to support our family's commitment to reading. I hope to make gifts of books a significant tradition. I was lucky to learn to read, to have parents and siblings that read to me, and to enjoy reading throughout childhood. I'm not a sentimental person, but one of my favorite gifts is a dictionary my mom gave me for my 12th birthday, I still have it and it is a nice reminder of my family's commitment to education and learning.
This carnival is dedicated to the gift of reading. Enjoy!
