Lenny Lee Fest – Happy Birthday, Lenny!

Lenny-SunshineBlogging takes a lot of time, so I’ve always been impressed with the Kid Lit bloggers I’ve found who are also kids. People like Erik at This Kid Reviews Books, or Felicia at Stanley & Katrina.

But the first kid blogger I ever followed was Lenny Lee at Lenny’s World. Despite battling leukemia and being raised by his brothers, Lenny connected with writers and readers and always spread sunshine in his wake. Passionate about animals and great books, Lenny also wrote and critiqued with several adult writers. His posts have been simple and fun, or they could be heart-wrenchingly beautiful, like this one for his mother, Dear Mom.

Lenny hasn’t been blogging as much these days, but he’s still an avid reader and writer and I’m so excited that today he’s celebrating his 15th birthday. YAY LENNY!!! I know things aren’t always easy for you, but I’m so glad that you’ve shared your life with the rest of us. We’re better for knowing you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
