A few days ago, I found a wonderful, wonderful children's books blog full of great kids books and written by a parent who is dedicated to reading. A blog with great layout, reviews, tons of content - it's everything that I would like Mommy's Favorite Children's Books to be, but haven't had the time to develop. This amazing blog is The Bookworm's Booklist, and it is written by Marietta, a nice lady who just introduced herself to the kidlitosphere. The biggest compliment I can give Marietta is that after reading her blog, I immediately grabbed our library card and requested lots of books from our library's Web site. We went to the library the same day and checked out even more books. Marietta has a beautiful site that's full of recommendations and there is so much to explore -- I know that The Bookworm's Booklist is going to be a wonderful reference for our family's reading.
I am also very pleased to see a new blog that is dedicated to toddler level books - Readertotz. Readertotz is written by kidslit professionals / industry insiders Lorie Ann Grover and Joan Holub, who in addition to children's books, are sharing their relationships with children's book authors. Neat! It is brand spankin' new blog with only a few entries but it has an enormous amount of potential. I'm particularly excited to see the attention given to board books, a category we love and are very interested in. I can't wait to see more!
Hooray for great children's lit bloggers!
