Friday Finds: John Green, The Snowy Day, and Book Landscapes

Book stuff:

  • First and foremost, John Green’s new book was released this week.  It is amazing.  I highly recommend The Fault in Our Stars.
  • Not Just Cute wishes The Snowy Day a Happy Birthday!  She also talks about diversity in children’s books. (As a side note to this, Twin Citians can explore a real life version of The Snowy Day in the Storyland exhibit at the MN Children’s Museum, which I blogged about here.)

Other Cool Stuff:

  • Books aren’t just for stories.  They are also for art.  These carved book landscapes are really amazing.

  • So far this winter has been very different from the Snowpocalypse that we survived last year.  This year we have to experience the magic of winter vicariously through Science Friday’s Winter Photo Contest.  I’d forgotten just how lovely a snowy winter can be.   (On a related note to teen librarians: teen fiction with snowy scenes on the cover might make a fun display.  I have just such a list on my wiki!)
