KidLit Celebrates Women’s History Month begins March 1st!
Active only during Women’s History Month, the annual blog celebration features readers, commenters, and contributors working together to create a dynamic resource of thoughtful and thought-provoking essays, commentaries, and book reviews. Each post is related to children’s literature and women’s history. This year marks the blog’s fifth birthday! 😀
The blog is a great resource for finding new books (especially nonfiction!) and useful links. Previous contributors include Jen Bryant, Andrea Davis Pinkney, Donna Jo Napoli, and Betsy Bird. Contributors for 2015 include Emily Arnold McCully (Queen of the Diamond), Misty Copeland (Firebird), Michaela McColl (The Revelation of Louisa May), and more.
The complete 2015 lineup may be found on the site’s sidebar. You can sign up to follow the blog, or receive it via email. Visit the site at http://kidlitwhm.blogspot.com to see “following” options, an archive of past contributions, and links to educational resources. It’s suitable for parents and teachers, too.
The official Women’s HistoryMonth theme for 2015, is “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives.”
Please join us, beginning March 1, at KidLit Celebrates Women’s History Month!
