from Alida Allison:
Lots of laughs, lots of fun, lots of food, and lots of reviews of contemporary children's books! Current and former Children's Literature MA students congregate to explore the latest of hundreds of books we receive for review, to read especially enjoyable sections aloud, or pass around spectacular illustrations. The Natl Center for the Study of Children's Literature posts some 200 reviews a year, then donates the books to SDSU's library, to local schools, or to Children's Hospital. Participants included: Emily Moore, Marie Soriano, Sean Prinz; Halima and Chris Bell, Marianne Paluso, NaToya Faughnder, and Kira Hall.
