Robert's Snow (and the blogosphere...)

Many of you are familiar with Robert's Snow, an online auction whose proceeds go to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (via the Jimmy Fund, a charity certainly familiar to any Red Sox fan!). Now, Robert's Snow is not just any online auction -- it's children's literature related from its founding right on up to what you buy: individual snowflakes created by picture book illustrators.

And if you go check out Jen Robinson's very thorough post on the topic, you'll also see that throughout the kidlitosphere this week, those illustrators are being featured on blogs galore, with more to come beyond this week.

So this is, as they say, all good. You can support cancer research (in the year in which Robert, for whom Robert's Snow was named, sadly passed away), you can buy unique gifts, you can learn about amazing illustrators, and you can find great new blogs. What's not to love? Get going, people!
