Happy Leap Day! The February Carnival of Children's Literature is now available at Anastasia Suen's Picture Book of the Day blog. In honor of today, February 29th, Anastasia has chosen "Leap into Reading" as her carnival's theme. For those unfamiliar with carnivals, a carnival is a collection of links to posts, all on the same general topic, each post contributed by a different person. People generally contribute their best post from the past month, making carnivals a source of high-quality content and a way to learn about new blogs.
Anastasia proposes that we all "use this extra day to leap into a book". While I certainly agree with that idea, I suggest starting by leaping into reading this carnival. There are simply tons of great posts included.
Have a great day! And if it's your birthday today, I hope it is four times extra special. I send particular birthday greetings to my friend Nick, and warm thoughts to Al's family, spending his day without him for the first time, but celebrating in his honor.
