The Children's Literature Network is near and dear to my heart for many reasons. The CLN website features amazing resources, books, and authors. I especially love the book trailers and author videos. Every February CLN hosts an exciting event called "Books for Breakfast". Guests at each table are delighted to dine with one of the featured authors who join them for the entire morning. Each author spends a few minutes addressing the whole crowd, tons of door prizes are given away and 5 literacy enthusiasts share their 5 favorite titles in 5 minutes. I was honored to be invited to participate in this year's Books for Breakfast event as one of the 5X5 Book Talkers! Bringing the best of children's literature into my classroom is one of the most important things I do to promote high levels of literacy learning with my students. CLN helps me accomplish this goal.
