The November Carnival of Children's Literature is now available. Host Wendy Wax has done a remarkable job, with everything from a custom-designed graphic to poetry to cheerful multicolored fonts to quotes from all of the posts. I don't know where she found the time, but the result is not to be missed. There are tons of book reviews this month, as well as author interviews, posts about how illustrations are made, and even a few writing tips. Fans of children's literature and literacy will not want to miss the November Carnival.
