May Carnival of Children's Literature

You may now view the May Carnival of Children's Literature at Into the Wardrobe. I wanted to submit THIS so just pretend I did.
Also of note, I really love the blog Cake Wrecks. I mean LURVE!!! ( A very special kind of love) I never miss a post. So imagine my surprise when I found that they have raided my childhood bookshelf to bring you THESE wonderfully done children's literature cakes. (Sunday is for pretty cakes, not wrecks)

Mother Reader's 48 Hour Book Challenge

If you are in to reading, which I am assuming you are, please take a moment to consider entering into a challenge. It is the Mother Reader's 48 Hour Book Challenge. You can read all about it by clicking on that fancy little button to the side.
Meanwhile, I should let you know that the Kidlitosphere Bloggers of Central Ohio will be getting together the morning of June 6th to enjoy a breakfast together and a visit to the wonderful book store Cover to Cover. (This has become a little tradition for celebrating all kinds of book related events) Since part of the 48 Hour Book Challenge this year challenges you to make a donation to something you feel strongly about, the Central Ohio peeps have decided to donate to Mary Lee of A Year of Reading. She is participating in a Fish-a-thon to rasise money for
a nonprofit organizaiton that offers no-cost retreats for breast cancer survivors. Long story short, I don't think I can make the trek up to Columbus that morning so I am pledging $1 for every book taken out of Cover to Cover by ALL the Kidlit Bloggers of Central Ohio. So tally up your books, gang, and send me a bill!
