Such an exciting week ahead! Tomorrow we’ll post our interview with Sally Lloyd Jones, and she’ll tell us her thoughts on kids’ devotionals as well as her new book, Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing. Until then, here are a few interesting kids’ book-related posts from the blogosphere lately:
- PW Kids Cast: If you enjoy hearing YA and kids’ book author podcasts, Publisher’s Weekly has started a new series.
- Tolkien’s New Book: The editor “has said that the book will more closely resemble ‘Sire Gawain and the Green Knight,’ a 14th century tale that Tolkien revamped for modern readers, than the author’s beloved trilogy.”
- Gabby Douglas: Fans of the Olympic Gold Medalist and outspoken Christian may want to check out her book in the works. Supposed to be out by Christmas!
- The Little Engine Who Couldn’t: Desiring Virtue’s Jessalyn Hutto uses the famous engine to provide insight into her walk with the Lord. While you’re there, if you missed it before, check out my recent post there, The Wisdom of Hank the Cowdog.
- Les Miserables: Have you seen the latest extended trailer!? Coming this Christmas! (Time to start reading the novel if you really want to savor it….)
What have you guys been reading lately? Seen any good (or really awful!) books or blog posts you’d like to share with us? I just got done reviewing BBC’s Call the Midwife for World, and I’m really excited to share some of my thoughts about it. For instance, I found out that the memoirs the show is based on were written by a Christian.
