Tonight I will be sending out the seventh 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 handy email format.
This week's issue contains reviews of four books (two picture books about trucks and two books for young adults), my weekly round-up of literacy news, and a Kidlitosphere round-up with links to useful posts from the week. I also have a quick post about the new issue of the online journal The Edge of the Forest, and a fun post that describes seven things about me as a reader. I had no other posts this week - everything was focused enough on books and raising readers to be included in the newsletter.
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'll have one more issue next Tuesday, and then I'll take a break for Christmas.
Updated to add: I had a slight technical glitch with Feedblitz when sending the newsletter by which the content was reordered in an unhelpful way. Just this once, I'm going to do a re-send. My apologies if you receive this message twice. You can delete the first one. It won't happen again. Thanks!
Updated again to add: The resend didn't work right either. Sigh! I'm going to have to hope for the technical problems to be fixed for next week. I'm very sorry for any inconvenience.
