New Feature! Get Yer Shiny New Feature, Here!brookeshelforganized.jpg

Sat, 01 Mar 2008 01:41:27 +0000

See that? Up there on the top of the right hand column! That’s right — I’ve decided to keep a small compendium of my favorite snippets of info gleaned from the kidlitosphere from the past few days. Doesn’t it look all lovely, streamlined, and alphabetized?  (Just like those numerical binders!) Alas, figuring out how to […]

An Announcement . . .brookeshelfclock1.jpg

The last post I wrote was over a week or two ago, right?  To my shock and horror, I found that someone had left a comment on it recently, which means people are still actually reading this blog.  Augh. Now, don’t get me wrong.  I LOVE that people are still reading this blog.  The problem […]

Bad news: the childhood home of Sarah Josepha Hale was burnt down by a pair of idiots over the weekend. Because some people apparently have a thing against lil’ lambies and Thanksgiving. Sarah Josepha Hale is best known as the author of “Mary Had a Little Lamb” — one of the few well-known nursery rhymes […]

I just discovered the delightful blog Vintage Kid’s Books My Kid Loves (again, thanks to Esme Codell) and fallen head-over-heels in love with it.  Brief, enthusastic reviews of picture books found at yard sales, thrift shops, and anywhere else fun old tales lurk are accompanied by small, well-chosen samples of illustration.  Like so: Best of […]

Set Coveting Sensors on “Stun”brookeshelfgrandtheater1.jpggrandtheatergoats.jpggrandtheatershadow.jpg

Ooooooh. It’s only February, and I already know what I want for Christmas: “Yeah,” you may say. “I’ve seen tabletop theaters before.” Take a closer gander: Those are tiny little marionettes! With spiffy little 3D pop-up scenery! You can do your own rendition of the “Lonely Herdsman” from The Sound of Music! Also: It does […]

Baker’s “Dozen”: IT’S GROUNDHOG DAY!brookeshelfgroundhog.jpgwhole-shebang.jpg

Sat, 02 Feb 2008 03:50:56 +0000

As a Pittsburgher, Groundhog Day is something of a Big Deal — admittedly, not a tremendously big deal — something on a scale between President’s Day and a Steelers Super Bowl win. We’re the closest major city to Punxutawney, the home of Groundhog Phil, who is the designated rodent for predicting the weather via shadow. […]

Here’s what’s great about today: I found out from Educating Alice that dwarves in Sweden have been hiding inside of suitcases in order to steal from tourists.  Eoin Colfer’s referenced as a . . . what?  An authority on fictional criminal dwarves?  The hey? Also, I discovered that there is such a thing in the […]

Video Sunday: Potter a’ Plentybrookeshelf

Sun, 27 Jan 2008 04:45:35 +0000

. . . and by “Potter” I am of course referring to Beatrix, not . . . you know. I thought it would be nice to dig up some Potter-themed videos to kick off the Potter Project (more books coming soon, I mean it!). Here’s an interesting little segment about the Royal Opera House ballet […]

The Potter Project: The Tale of Peter Rabbit, or, Stay Away From the Man Who Ate Your Fatherbrookeshelfpeter-rabbit-cover.jpgpeter-rabbit.jpg

Thu, 24 Jan 2008 02:31:11 +0000

Peter gave himself up for lost, and shed big tears; but his sobs were overheard by some friendly sparrows, who flew to him in great excitement, and implored him to exert himself. Here’s why I love this book: it uses the word “implored.” Also “dreadfully,” “fortnight,” and “chamomile.” There are a lot of abominable dumbed-down […]
