A String Of Bright Lights

A String of Bright Lights: Great Blogs about Children's and Young Adult Literature by Pooja Makhijani is available at Paper Tigers. Pooja doesn't just list some great blogs; she also reveals the hardest thing about a blog: finding a name.

In full disclosure, I must say that Pooja calls Tea Cozy a "must read".

By happy coincidence, Pooja was recently at my place of work, giving a presentation called MORE THAN MONKEYS, MAHARAJAHS AND MANGOES: An Overview of South Asian Literature for Kids. (Yes, MPOW provides this type of inhouse workshop all the time; how cool is that?) It was very informative; contained the type of information that I'm ashamed to say I didn't know about the South Asian immigrant experience in the US; and left me scribbling tons of titles to take out of the library. If you have the chance to go to one of her presentations, go!

What a great piece, full of compliments for so many well-deserving blogs! Kudos for your inclusion. :)

Good luck to Pooja on picking a name. It will strike you, and when it does, it will be perfect! (BTW, I absolutely adore the logo at papertiger.)
