Dear Bookish Friends:
As I am sure some of you have noticed, I have not been blogging for a while. The reason for this is that I have been very sick for months and my work and music, my life as a whole, really suffered. Thankfully, I have managed to crawl out of the hole of darkness that took over my life for so long. I am back, and I am eager to read, write, play music, dance, run, and hike once more. I am eager to be a part of the world again.
This morning I posted the new issue of TTLG, which is for March and April. Please take a look at the Welcome Page to see what is new. I am particularly proud of the Strong Girls, Strong Women feature, which ties into March's Women's History Month. In addition to what is already in the TTLG library, I will be posting here, every week in March, at least one new review of a book that celebrates women and girls. The first of these posts will appear on this blog later today.
I am so looking forward to sharing books with you again and hope to hear from many you in the days ahead.
Dear Book Lovers, Welcome! I am delighted that you have found The Through the Looking Glass blog. For over twenty years I have reviewed children's literature titles for my online journal, which came out six times a year. Every book I reviewed for that publication can be found on the Through the Looking Glass website (the link is below). I am now focusing on writing reviews and articles, and finding interesting book related news, for this blog. Many of the titles that I will be sharing with you will appeal to adults as well as children. I firmly believe that some of the best writing in the world can be found on the pages of books that were written for young people. I invite you adults to explore these books for yourselves; they will, I am sure, delight and surprise you. I hope what you will find here will make your journey into the world of children's literature more enjoyable. Please visit the Through the Looking Glass Facebook page as well for even more bookish posts
