Whoa! the past two weeks have been chaotic as most people on the East Coast know. Dad's in the hospital with pneumonia. I'd like to blame Sandy but I don't think a hurricane can cause pneumonia. So there's been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing.
In the meantime, family members are arriving from all over because Dad is pretty sick. Poor Dad!
Anyway, KBWT did not happen this week but I just found a website that I am going to use A LOT! Carol Hurst's Children's Literature Site. Teachers and children's activity leaders will LOVE this site. Helpful reviews, booklists, a newsletter, links to other helpful sites, lesson plans! So much useful well-organized stuff.
I needed a resource list for cities and towns because today is World Town Planning Day and Carol Hurst's site had an excellent list with books I SHOULD have remembered to include in my program tonight. I just signed up for Carol's newsletter so that I never forget this site again. YAY!
And World Town Planning Day reminds me of one of my favorite towns - Richard Scarry's Busy Town!! CBS has a great site based on their Busy Town Mysteries show. Check it out
