Picture Book of the Day
by Bill Berlin (Author), Susan Isakoff Berlin (Author), and Peter Welling (Illustrator)
Booktalk: In the town of Oyville, the children were preparing for Hanukkah. But the kvetch who lived high on the hill had other plans…
What is a kvetch, you may want to know.
What makes him so gloomy, what makes him say no?
A kvetch is a person who likes to complain.
When others see sun, a kvetch will see rain.

Chapter Book of the Day
by Paul Fleisher (Author)
Booktalk: What causes thunderstorms and lightning? Where and why do hurricanes form? How are blizzards more dangerous than other snowstorms? To answer these questions, you’ll need to know about nature’s most powerful weather events. Storms of all types and sizes occur around the globe. Each storm needs just the right combination of weather conditions to form and become dangerous–or even destructive. In this fact-packed book, discover how storms form, where they strike, and what makes them so powerful.
Snippet: Sunlight provides energy for all weather–including storms. Sunlight warms the Earth’s surface. It causes water on the ocean’s surface to evaporate, or change from liquid to gas. A storm’s energy comes from the sun’s heat. Understanding storms involves four Cs: convection, condensation convergence, and the Coriolis effect.

Blog Countdown #6
Due to technical difficulties (see below) I am moving ALL of my blogs here to Booktalking.
Q. Why are you moving your blogs during the busy holidays?
A. Two reasons:
1. I’m being innundated by foreign language spam.
2. The Feedburner subscription service has locked me out.
This means that while others have found me (in a BIG way!) I can no longer find you. I can’t access my subscriber lists. I’ve had the same login since 2006, but Feedburner was sold to Google and now my passwords no longer work!
I have to START OVER.
1. I will consolidate ALL 8 blogs into 1 at Booktalking.
2. I will count down this week and next (from 10-1)…and then close the other 7 blogs.
If you read this blog via a Google subscription, please click here and sign up for email with WordPress. (It’s the widget on the right that says “Send me this blog via email.”) Then I can see you – and help you – if you need assistance with your subscription.
