10 Conversations You Need To Have With Your Children by Shmuley Boteach

Tuesday, Oct 09, 2007 at 7:55pm

Parents are offered guidelines for specific conversations with their children. I appreciated reading Boteach's perspectives on fundamental aspects of family. The book gives parents or guardians of children avenues for strenghtening or establishing better relationships. This book may be for those who are raising children but carries wisdom for any who read it.

Amber Thody, who used to manage McNally Robinson for Kids in Saskatoon, points us to a great book blog out of New Zealand:

I was very happy to see the familiar logo as I called up Beattie's blog this morning. it's the source for everything one ought to know about the English language book industry down here; everybody in the industry reads it religiously; so now Australia and New Zealand will know about the wonders of McNally Robinson Booksellers!

Graham Beattie is a consultant within the New Zealand publishing industry, a book reviewer, book blogger and a former Managing Director/Publisher of Penguin Books NZ Ltd., and Scholastic NZ Ltd. Former Books & Poetry Editor, Citymix Magazine.

I Celebrated Bookninja's Birthday and All I Got Was This Lousy Shirt

Wednesday, Aug 22, 2007 at 10:07am

Bookninja has been celebrating their fourth year of existence with a contest. Submit a photo of yourself reading their site, or posing with their logo, and you could win a t-shirt. It may sound silly, but if Saskatoon author Leona Theis is a proud ninja, maybe you could be too.

I bet a bookninja tattoo would win easily. Then again, maybe a t-shirt isn't quite worth a tattoo. Hold off on that until they turn ten, when I'm sure they'll be giving away ninja-branded iPods.
