Updates and Reminders

Reminder: Don't forget to enter the Testing the Ice book giveaway (see post).

The Childrenslitproject blog which I posted about previously (the production blog of The Library of the Early Mind, a feature-length documentary film about children’s literature) has two new video clips up! The first is with Mary Ann Hoberman, the US Children's Poet Laureate:

Mary Ann Hoberman was named Children’s Poet Laureate by the Poetry Foundation. Author of 45 books, all but one of which are in verse, Hoberman collaborated with her husband, artist Norman Hoberman, on her first four books, including her first book of poems, All My Shoes Come in Twos (1957). Some of Hoberman’s best-known titles are A House is a House for Me, illustrated by Betty Fraser; The Seven Silly Eaters, illustrated by Marla Frazee; and The Llama Who Had No Pajama, a collection of 100 of her favorite poems. Her verses have been widely anthologized and her books have been translated into several languages. She is the recipient of a National Book Award.

The second is with Brian Selznick:

Brian is the author/illustrator of the critically acclaimed The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which was awarded the 2008 Caldecott Medal. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Brian worked in a Manhattan bookstore for three years, during which time he wrote his first book, The Houdini Box. We interviewed Brian at the Lincoln School in Providence.
