But as a step in that direction, I thought I'd recommend these two blogs about kids and YA books.
Read Roger. Roger Sutton is the editor in chief of Horn Book, one of the best children's book review journals out there. The blog is part of the Horn Book website, and always has interesting tidbits, recommendations and commentary on the state of children's book publishing.
Worth the Trip is a brand new blog focusing on LGBTQ books for children and teens. Alternating reviews of new books with looks back at "classic" gay literature, it's quickly became one of my favourite blogs.
