What a difference a week makes! Where just a week ago we were (alas) cover by a light blanket of snow, this week the flowers have rebounded as if the cold weather never happened. They might look delicate, but the early spring blooms are hardy. (And the temperature is nice and warm too – the weather’s always a roller-coaster around here…)
Friday marked the halfway point for the Classic Children’s Literature Event. Already! A reminder (to myself, if no one else) that this coming weekend, April 22-24, is planned for discussion of Emil and the Detectives. I’ve finished my reading, so just now for the writing. I’ve also finished up another group of Beatrix Potter stories and The Jungle Book; if I’m very well behaved I will post on both this week.
But besides myself there have been plenty of posts for the Event. A round up for the halfway point:
Anastacia from Rambling Reviews:
On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Carol from Jouney and Destination:

Please let me know if I’ve missed your post! And please don’t forget to add your links to the main post so that we all can shares in each others’ reading experiences.
Happy Reading! There’s still plenty of month left for much more children’s literature.
