Book Blogger Appreciation Week

Please make sure that you watch for Book Blogger Appreciation Week which will be September 13-17, 2010 this year. Tomorrow is the last day to register (which will list your blog in a directory and increase your visibility). In addition, you may submit your blog for awards. Although this blog is very specific in focus, I believe that the resources I review are vitally important for children's literature. Therefore, I am submitting the following five reviews for the Best KidLit Book Blog.

The Hidden Girl: A True Story of the Holocaust

The Cat with the Yellow Star


Passage to Freedom: The Sugihara Story

Elly: My True Story of the Holocaust

Thank you so much for your consideration and for remembering those whose stories will never be told.

I've just discovered you via the BBAW awards process - what a wonderful resource you have created here. I was particularly interested in your reviews of Brundibar and Elly: My True Story of the Holocaust - I hope to review Brundibar soon on my own blog (it's been sat on my shelf for several months waiting!), and as I lived in Hungary for several years and am close friends with a Jewish family in Budapest Elly's story sounded like a book I'd like to read.

What a wonderfully unique site and I'm so glad to see you joined in BBAW! There are so many out there who will benefit greatly from your reviews and insight with all of the Holocaust books available. I especially like how you wrap up each review at the end, it makes it so easy to tell who the book would be best for and how you viewed the book. Good luck with BBAW!
