Children's Literature: Websites, Listservs and Blogs

A guide to resources in children's literature.


Listserves and Blogs


CCBC-Net is a listserv  from the Cooperative Children’s Book Center (CCBC) at the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  It encourages awareness and discussion of ideas and issues critical to literature for children and young adults. CCBC-Net members explore a wide range of topics in contemporary literature for youth, including multicultural literature, translated books, outstanding, and award-winning books, equity themes and topics, the book arts and book publishing, and more. Every month CCBC-Net focuses on a new topic or issue.


There are innumerable Children's Literature blogs and choosing them is largely a matter of personal taste. A good  place to start is the list of School Library Journal blogs. One of them,  Elizabeth Bird's blog, A FUSE #8 PRODUCTION, which originally rose to popularity with it's "Hot Men of Children's Literature" postings and is now being closely followed for  "The Top 100 Children's Novels Poll" is a good one to start with because of the extensive list of children's literature blogs she follows.
