Field Trip!!!

This Friday, our Children's Literature class is going on a field trip to Toronto. 

First, we're going to visit The
Osborne Collection
which is a public collection of rare children's books and which includes two other collections – the Lillian H. Smith Collection and the Canadiana Collection.  The site features info about their current exhibit (Books as Toys: The History
and Art of Pop-up and Movable Books) as well as links describing the
three collections in greater detail.

Then in the afternoon, we move on to The
Canadian Children's Book Centre
.  Their website features resource links, book
reviews, publishers websites and links to author/illustrator

A Classmate of the Day Award to Linda Bussiere for compiling these links and web site summaries to help us get excited for the trip.  Our prof joked that she'd booked a yellow school bus to take us for the two-hour trip into Toronto so that we would learn sympathy for some of the things young people endure (at least I hope she was joking!)

If I remember to take the digital camera, I'll post pictures of our adventures.
