Merry Christmas!! Tonight I will be sending out the ninth issue of my Growing Bookworms weekly email newsletter. If you would like to subscribe, you can find a sign-up form here. The Growing Bookworms newsletter contains content from my blog focused on children's books and raising readers, all in a convenient email format. There are currently 126 subscribers.
This week's issue contains reviews of four books (two picture books, one book for early readers, and one for middle grade readers), and two Kidlitosphere round-ups with links to useful posts from the week. I also have an announcement about the latest Carnival of Children's Literature. Content from the blog not included in this week's newsletter includes:
- An announcement about the relaunch of the American Idol website.
- A link to a list of my favorite reads from 2007, published at Chasing Ray.
- An announcement about the birth of the newest member of the Kidlitosphere community.
The Growing Bookworms newsletter will continue to contain a subset of content already included on my blog, Jen Robinson's Book Page, for readers who may not choose to visit the blog every day. It is also my hope that parents, authors, teachers, librarians, and other adult fans of children's books, people who may not visit blogs regularly, or at all, will learn about and subscribe to the newsletter. If you could pass it along to any friends or colleagues who you think would be interested, I would be very grateful.
Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms. I hope that if you celebrate it, you had a wonderful Christmas. And I hope that either way you've had a peaceful long weekend.
