This is just a reminder that the next Carnival of Children’s Literature is coming up on June 23rd. Deadline for submissions is Saturday June 21. The theme is Fathers in children’s literature. The carnival is simply a gathering of posts on a related topic. The Carnival of Children’s Literature is a gathering of posts for the month on the topic of children’s literature. Sometimes, like this month, the person hosting the carnival chooses a theme. In honor of Father’s Day I chose fathers in children’s literature. What father or father figure has stood out in your mind long after you closed the pages of the book? Write a blog post about it and then let me know so I can add it to the carnival.

Hi, Susan — I love your tag: “busy.” I bet. I loved the interview with Jim, and how great you are doing this carnival. It’s the first time I have submitted to a carnival, and I went to the link you gave but felt slightly overwhelmed. So if you don’t mind, I’m taking you up on your generous offer to send a notice to you directly! Could you link to my June 16 blog? If it makes it easier for you for me to go through the other steps though, please tell me, and I will figure out my way.
I absolutely will! Thanks.
I was also overwhelmed with figuring out the Carnival submission process. (It was all I could do to blog.) I hope you get this before midnight! Here is the link to my blog on fathers.
No problem. And thank you, Joyce. I’ve got very few entries.
Sorry there haven’t been more contributions. I do think the topic is a bit difficult but that is all the more reason to explore it! Thanks for bringing it up!
The other thing I realized is I was trying to think of good father figures. But, I believe your assignment left it wide open. It would be interesting to explore the negative ones as well as the ones we like.
Ooooh. Love: how to make a bad day pretty good. Thank you, Susan, and hugs to your great guy, too.
I love “colors hold my hand.” Sometimes we are just so hungry for color . . .
Have you seen Natalie Goldberg’s Top of My Lungs? It’s poems and paintings–she’s a self-taught artist. Her colors are amazing. The essay “How Poetry Saved My Life” is worth the book.
How too tunign kia
Kia has recently started installing the 2.0 liter turbo engine from the Optima turbo in the 2011 Sportage. Jason asked me if I would attend the press preview on his behalf, and I’d like to present the above photo as evidence that I did a proper job of testing the Sportage SX’s 256 horsepower engine. Details of both the Sportage and my financial contribution to the great state of Arizona will be coming soon on About.com’s SUVs and Minivans site.
You are, of course, dead-on. I need to look at this more closely but of course that scares me a bit.
But I think it’s natural, in the getting-to-know each other phase of the relationship, for my characters to be defensive of me poking into their lives for the first time.
Gary teaches at Hamline University. I wish you could go to it! He’s pretty good to work with, though honestly I don’t see how he keeps up with everything, because he also teaches at Calvin College in Michigan. Crazy.
But if you’re able to drop by St. Paul in July maybe you can drop by the campus during residency. They offer lecture passes to some of the readings and lectures, and if you come by you can say hey. And you wouldn’t have to pay back a bajillion dollars in student loans like I am going to here in a few years.
