Dear Kidlit411 Community,

We've had another great year of sharing kid lit links and getting to know so many of you. Thank you for being a part of Kidlit 411, sharing your friendship, knowledge, advice, commiseration, or funny or inspirational thoughts. 

Here are a few inspirational links as you enjoy the season:

  • Our friend Carrie Charley Brown recently summarized what's great about the kid lit community in her post, Helping Hands.
  • Four videos on storytelling and creativity, including Ira Glass's great advice for beginners and Jarrett Kros. 

As you know, the Weekly 411 recaps all the links added to our site each week. To get this post by email, sign up for our weekly updates. If you have links to share or any other comments, send them to 

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to All!
