It's gift buying time again so I'm looking at books to send to my fellow readers and lovers of children's stories. If you are searching for some ideas let me suggest a trip to the CYBILS (Children's and Young Adults Bloggers' Literary Awards) website. Scroll down just a bit to find the 2009 nominations listed by genre.

Here are the answers for Friday's Famous Firsts:
1. "When Mary Lennox was sent to Misslethwhaite Manor to live with her uncle everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen." The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

2. "It happened many years ago, before the traders and missionaries first came into the South Seas, while the Polynesians were still great in numbers and fierce of heart." Call It Courage by Armstrong Sperry.
