"The theme for this carnival is The Gift of Reading. As the holiday season soon approaches, people will start planning their holiday celebrations and the gifts they will give to loved ones. I felt the Gift of Reading is the perfect subject for the November carnival -- a well-chosen book is a wonderful gift, especially to a young reader. Also, reading is a gift for a lifetime. It's amazing how important literacy is to a person's entire life, and it's a message worth repeating again and again."
Don't miss it! Karen has some lovely links.
Next month's Carnival will be held here, on December 17th. That happens to be the three-year anniversary of Jen Robinson's Book Page. As a theme, I'm going to ask you to submit what you think is your very best post (ideally about children's literature or reading) from all of 2008. The deadline is December 15th. I'm not sure what's happened with the Carnival site, but you can make your submissions to me by email.
