Welcome to our Kids’ Picks carnival that will take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
Our What’s on Your Nightstand? carnival has been so popular (join us September 23 this month), and people are always asking for recommendations for their children, so I thought I’d sort of combine the two and give everyone a chance to share what their children have loved reading that month — whether the child is two or twelve or seventeen.
Your child can guest post for you, or you can write it up yourself. You can focus on one child, or write about all of your children’s picks. Highlight one memorable book or three. It’s up to you.
The goal is to just talk children’s books, and specifically what they like (not necessarily what we like or what we want them to like).
So, join in — either by writing your own post and linking it up here (please remember to link to your direct post not to the front page of your blog), or reading others’ recommendations, or both.
It might be helpful if you include the ages of the children whose selections you are highlighting for future perusal of the recommendations.
This month’s links are closed, but if you’d like to join in, please join us in October on the 21st to share what your kids have enjoyed this month.

I LOVE this topic!! With two girls (almost 1 and almost 3) we’re always reading something. And since I found Barefoot Books and started selling them this year, we have many new favorites. Thanks!!
Great topic. Thanks!

I just learned about this carnival via Jen Robinson’s Book Page (http://jkrbooks.typepad.com/) via her guest post on My Friend Amy’s blog for Book Blogger Appreciation Week (http://www.myfriendamysblog.com/) and I can’t wait to participate next month! What a great idea!
