I found two new sites for information on books today. I find getting information on tech is usually pretty easy. I have tons of RSS feeds, and twitter feeds that are full of educational tech information. Finding information about new and exciting children's literature is somewhat of a different matter. Because I was never formally trained in this area, and have limited expertise (this is only my third year as a teacher-librarian, and my first as a full time one!) I have not found it easy to learn or hear about new books.
The Cath in the Hat
Cath is a children's liteature author and editor, and she offers her opinions and insights about books that she has read. I find her ideas interesting, and well written, so I keep coming back to see what she has said. Her blog is on now on my RSS feed.
I heard about Tinlids from a fellow librarian. While they are a book seller, so far, in just a week, I have enjoyed what they have to say about different books. Almost as important, they are Canadian, giving them a slightly more local approach to books.
