Carnival of Children’s Literature – March

Welcome to the March 2012 edition of the Carnival of Children’s Literature!

March started off with Dr. Seuss’s Birthday and the release of The Lorax. I loved seeing everyone excited about Seuss, reading, and the environment this month because of that.  I, myself, received free tickets to The Lorax and took my son to see his first ever movie. While I still prefer the book and the 1972 animated special, I have to admit the movie was better than I expected. I hope many families were inspired to buy the actual book or check it out at the library.

More importantly, March is Women’s History month! There’s no doubting that when you see the fantastic lineup of reviews this month either. Yet, we still have a nice bit of variety outside of Seuss and women’s history. I put a number of new titles on our MUST READ list and I think you will too after hopping through these posts.

I hope everyone had fun at this month’s Carnival of Children’s Literature. Join the fun again in April over at A Curious Thing!
