I just found out via Twitter that former HB editor Anita Silvey has a new blog, the Children’s Book-a-Day Almanac. God help her, Anita is posting a book recommendation daily, each tied in some way to that day’s significance. Today, for example, she writes about the D’Aulaires’ Abraham Lincoln in honor of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, delivered on November 19th, 1863. The posts are persuasive and rich with history, publishing and otherwise. Check it out.
That’s a lotta work, girl.
