For awhile I had been thinking about moving the blog so that I would have a bit more freedom creatively. I’ve discovered that with Creative Whim, and am even more happy (break out the tea!) because I’m also changing the title of the blog to something different. (Cue: dramatic music)
There are a few reasons for this. First, I don’t just review children’s literature on the blog, though this is the genre of literature I studied in graduate school, and I read a large number of children’s titles every year. But, in addition to picturebooks and middle grade literature, I read A LOT of Young Adult, as well as Adult. And, many of you know I love to bake, so there are a lot of cookbooks on my shelves.
Cookbooks represent another genre I’ve considered sharing on the blog, and that will be on the horizon for 2015. So basically, the blog is going to stay the same, and yet change a little too. You can read more on my About page.
Of course, I’ll still emphasize spirituality in the books I read (Illuminations) because that’s something I don’t want to get away from, but renaming the blog is just a broadening of the Books Horizon for Spirit of Children’s Literature. I hope you’re excited as I am!
You’ll find all the details for my second giveaway over at my Author Interview with Anne Blankman. (Hint: There are some cool goodies to win over there too.)
I would love to know what you think about the new design of the blog. So pour yourself a cup of tea, sit down, and let’s chat! As always, thank you for your support and encouragement for Spirit of Children’s Literature–without you all, blogging and chatting about all things bookish just wouldn’t be the same!

If you haven’t read this award winning story, you should. Here’s a segment of my review here on the blog:
The One and Only Ivan raises multiple significant themes, including the idea that compassion for others leads to action and intervening on their behalf. The story suggests that expressing our creativity in surprising ways can lead to transformational experiences that bring hope and love to others. The relationships among the characters communicates the idea that our connections with others are vital, life changing and can affect us in ways we do not expect.
You will surely want to meet The One and Only Ivan, winner of the 2012 Newbery medal.
