The Olympics and The Horn Book

We are gearing up for the Olympics here in our household.  Bryce and I love the summer and winter Olympics.  The t.v. is on a great deal for two weeks!  I love the spirit of rooting for the home team and rooting for the underdog.  Anything can happen.  Last week the children and I went to the library and checked out some books on China, as well as some picture books to read to the children.  I got "The Mud Flat Olympics" by James Stevenson, "Wilma Unlimited" by Kathleen Krull and "America's Champion Swimmer" by David Adler.  

All three books are really good, but I never would have found them on my own.  That's where The Horn Book comes in.  The Horn Book is a magazine that reviews children's literature.  It has a lot of insightful and interesting articles in it and is quite in-depth.  I wasn't so sure that I would be able to use something that in-depth, so I was thrilled to see that they have a newsletter.  From what I have seen, the newsletter is like an abridged version of the magazine and it also has timely recomendations for current events (such as the Olympics).  I signed up and am looking forward to receiving (electronically) my first copy.  If you are interested you can sign up for it here
