Boxes Of Memories
Kids Book Review is one of my favourite websites - that's why I began contributing to it and now help manage it with the lovely Tania McCartney.
I've been so busy with it lately, and I'm loving it. I've had my nose in books, madly reviewing to keep up with my ever-growing pile, and when it's not there it's busy emailing Tania (the two of us have minds that don't stop - ever - so we're coming up with ideas faster than we keep up with!), publishers, authors and illustrators, preparing some hugely exciting things.
The things we have lined up include:
- guest posts from some amazing Australian authors, illustrators and literacy specialists;
- VERY special peeks at the people who write and illustrate in a new series of posts we're calling Behind the Books (wait until you see the dream list of authors and illustrators who are jumping on board!);
- our first giveaways (you'll want these books as soon as you lay eyes on them - I did!);
- and of course, reviews of some great new releases and...
My Mum helped me go through some boxes the other day, of old books from my childhood and hers. We were both thrilled to discover so many old favourites.
I've written about it at Kids Book Review, and I'd love it if you came over and told me about your favourite childhood books! Just click... here!
