KidLit Past and Present

A Quick Mention

Yesterday, I posted a poem, “Hey Joey!”.  It’s a little bit of fun – or is it?

KidLit Past and Present

I’m interested in compiling a list of books for children, both those old favourites and modern works.  The list will be divided into age ranges, of course, and I intend to apply a top age of 16 years.  Now, this is where you come in!  I would like this list to not be mine.  I would like it to be a list of recommendations by many.  Below, you’ll find a special contact form.  If you complete the fields in the form, I will add your recommendation to the list.  More, I will include a link to your blog/website!  There are some rules, of course:

  1. I won’t accept any recommendations of your own books!
  2. I won’t accept any link to your own books instead of a link to your blog/website.  For example, an Amazon Author page is fine, but not an Amazon book page!  Facebook pages are okay, but only if they are proper pages, not personal profiles.
  3. You may opt out of providing a blog/website link but you must allow the inclusion of your name!  You may provide either a real or ‘pen’ name.
  4. Out of print books may be recommended but this status must be mentioned.

Please be careful!  Please only include genuine children’s books!

Finally, please only use the comments on this post for actual comments.  Please don’t put your recommendations there instead of using the form!

Thank you all.

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.

    • Thanks :) LOL!

      With an ever growing list of grandchildren, it’s wise ;) But, of course, there’s also the fact that children’s books may well be the most important books in the world :)
