Let It Snow!

Winchester! Wake up! It's snowing!

Wha--? How long was I sleeping? When I took my nap it was 75 degrees and a sunny October day.

It's not snowing outside, silly. But it's snowing all over the place in children's book blogland. Today is the first day that people can read about the snowflakes and the illustrators who created them.

What's all this about again? I forgot.

The only thing you remember is meal time. Robert's Snow is an event to help raise funds for medical research at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Nearly 200 children's book illustrators have hand-painted wooden snowflakes. The snowflakes will be auctioned off in three groups:
November 19-12, November 26-30, and December 3-7. You can look at all the snowflakes and read the story of Robert's Snow at the Dana Farber site.

And now you can read interviews about the illustrators. Five will be featured each day on different host blogs. Check the coordinating blog Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast for a daily schedule.

Wow. All this snow talk makes me want to go make snow angels.

Be an angel and view the snowflakes. Bid on one!
