The August 2009 Carnival of Children's Literature is now available at In Need of Chocolate. Sarah has chosen a back-to-school theme, with sections for Social Studies, Language Arts, and the all-important Sustained Silent Reading. There are lots of great posts, from history and geography to civics. I think that the back-to-school theme is an excellent choice for showcasing the diversity of the Kidlitosphere. The carnival is well worth checking out. Even if you already follow the blogs of most of the participants, it's still interesting to see which post each person has decided to submit, and to remember "oh yes, that was a good one".
