BookVoyages #10

In episode 10, I mention the School Library Journal's Best of 2005 List, an article on the goals of the company behind the Narnia movie, new US Postal stamps featuring animals from children's literature, and a British study with some insights on poorer students reading habits. I review Runny Babbit: A Billy Sook by Shel Silverstein, Pacific Northwest Ballet Presents: Nutcracker, and Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert. Sam of The SG Show Podcast reviews The Penultimate Peril by Lemony Snicket. That's all until January 9th, 2006! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
