“A Sunshine Award for ‘A Writer’s Playground'” by Linda Martin Andersen
“A Writer’s Playground”
A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.
YES! I was awarded a blogger award called The Sunshine Award—
for bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.”
What a compliment! Thank you, Joan Edwards for selecting “A Writer’s Playground” for The Sunshine Award.

Now, it’s my turn to recognize some fellow blogger friends with The Sunshine Award.
1. From the Mixed-up Files at http://www.fromthemixedupfiles.com/ A definite ray of sunshine for middle grade readers and writers. The latest post by Sue Cowing features an independent bookstore in Kansas City MO called Reptile Readers. You’ve got to check it out. Other independent book stores are featured in posts, along with book reviews based on themes, and even giveaways. It’s a super blogging group.
2. ReaderKidZ at http://www.readerkidz.com/ This site posts book reviews by themes for younger readers. It features authors-in-residence and resources for parents and teachers. ReaderKidZ deserves to be recognized for recommending quality reading materials that brighten a child’s face like sunshine brightens a day. Another quality blogging group.
3. The Forest Artist at http://theforesterartist.com/ This site is posted by Tim Livingston, a forester who is also an artist. He and his wife, The Backdoor Artist, appreciate nature and its beauty. They are willing to belly crawl for just the right photograph of wildlife. They see the beginning of each new day together and capture it in their art. It’s my honor to present them each with the Sunshine Award.
4. The Backdoor Artist at http://thebackdoorartist.com/2012/10/09/wings-of-autumn/ I spotlighted this particular post because turkey buzzards just flew in my yard. Mary Livingston’s post mentions a book she’s creating about these birds. She finds beauty where most only see ugly. Sounds like she’s someone who deserves the Sunshine Award to me.
*Applause!* Now, I’d like to ask these bloggers to please pass The Sunshine Award to other bloggers. Keep the rays shining bright.
Thank you for joining us at “A Writer’s Playground.” Come again soon and bring a friend.
