Inspiration Sources Part 2

In our final post for this class, we share the blogs that inspired our coursework and our daily work in programming for kids. We didn't include alot of our most favorite storytime blogs because storytimes were outside the scope of our course (but we love you all).  Stop by here for Part 1.
A big thanks to all the students in our spring course for the generous sharing of ideas. Without their enthusiasm and discussion work, this blog wouldn't be here. Everyone who works with kids gets to program. And we hope that this blog has inspired some new programming thoughts for you!
