Kid Lit Blog Hop #31

22 Jan

Sometimes time just gets away from you–especially when you’ve been sick for a few days. Suddenly, it’s Wednesday, I’m two reviews behind and wondering how I’ll catch up (not to mention dishes, laundry, and other housekeeping). Fortunately I had Monday and Tuesday’s reviews mostly written, so they should be up later today (Mommy and Me Start Cooking by DK and Jungle of Bones by Ben Mikaelsen). And keep watch for upcoming reviews of Breakfast With Bigfoot, The Quantum League: Spell Robbers, Princess Madeline and the Dragon, Mumbet’s Declaration of Independence and more.

In the meantime, it’s time for another Kid Lit Blog Hop! So, get your links ready and prepare to hop around discovering great children’s books.

Welcome to the 31st Kid Lit Blog Hop where twice per month (the 1st and 3rd Wednesday) we continue to develop a dynamic and engaged community of children’s books bloggers, authors, publishers, and publicists. So, you are always more than welcome to join us by popping in a post and hopping around to meet some of your fellow Kid Lit bloggers and authors!

We are pleased to welcome a new full-time permanent hostess on the Hop, Mia from the parenting and book blog, Pragmatic Mom is joining us! Big welcome to Mia and a big THANK YOU to my fellow hostesses – you are all amazing bloggers and authors.

Happy Hopping everyone and enjoy the Hop!

2. Link up any Kid Lit related post. This can be a link to a children’s book review, a discussion about children’s literature/literacy, or a post on a recently-read children’s book or one that you love from your childhood.

* Don’t link directly to your blog, it must be a specific post.*

* For Authors, we prefer you to link to your blog if you have one. Please link unique posts each time ~ no repeats please. *

* Make sure you include an image relevant to the POST (e.g., book cover), not your blog button or photo of yourself.*

* Feel free to link more than one post.*

3. Please visit AT LEAST the TWO LINKS directly ahead of your own and leave them some love in the form of a comment. We are trying to build a community of bloggers, readers, parents, authors, and others who are as passionate about children’s literature as we are so please CONNECT and follow any or all of the blogs that interest you!

4. If you like, grab the button above and put it somewhere on your blog, preferably the post you’re linking up. If you’d prefer, you can just add a text link back to this Hop so that others can find it and check out all these great book links!

5. It would really help us get the word out about the Kid Lit Blog Hop if you would be so kind as to tweet, share, and spread the word about the Hop!

    Hi, Destiny!

    Thanks so much for stopping by Stanley & Katrina’s post on the Kid Lit Blog hop and for sharing it with others. You are wonderful. I know how hard it is to keep up. Do you post reviews daily? I can’t even imagine that. With one or two a month, it is more than enough for me. 🙂 Thanks for hosting the Kid Lit Blog Hop!

      Of course! It was a fun review and really looked like a book worth reading. I try not to share *too* many links on any given day, because I don’t want to overwhelm my Twitter followers (since I already find the site to be overwhelming). I post one review a day, Monday-Friday (unless it’s blog hop day, then I just do the hop post). Sometimes I do an extra on the weekend if it’s for a blog tour or book blast.

      I love reading and reviewing–but sometimes I forget that this is a hobby, not a job! If I don’t post one day, it’s not the end of the world, right? Right? 🙂

      Most of the time, though, it’s fun. And I’ve gotten to meet some lovely people doing this, which makes it worthwhile.

        ” If I don’t post one day, it’s not the end of the world, right? Right? :)”

        Hee hee. I’m working on this right now. Limiting the # of posts and being okay with it. Easier said than done, right? 😉
