Kidlit...is it a dirty word?
I love the term "kidlit" and I use it both in my blog and as a hashtag for twitter. The whole question of the term "kidlit" versus "children's literature" has been raging amongst bloggers since Betsy Bird mentioned on her birthday blog post that some find the term derogatory. Very interesting discussion. Check out Katie Davis' podcast on the topic as she not only sums up the discussion, but does so using quotes from several of the bloggers who've been part of the discussion. It's podcast #30.
