Bookbird, the IBBY Journal
This week, Cynsations features an interview with Cathy Kurkjian and Sylvia Vardell, the co-editors of Bookbird, the IBBY journal. The journal publishes articles on children's literature from an international perspective.
Excerpt from the interview: "Our goal is to provide a forum for considering books, topics, themes, and issues in the field of children's literature that are of interest to professionals and scholars around the world."
Bookbird is also valuable reading for those writers whose stories tend to wander across geographical and cultural boundaries and who feel the need to stay in touch with the rich diversity and dynamic growth of children's books in more than one market. A gift indeed.
