Growing Bookworms Newsletter: February 19, 2008

Jpg_book007Tonight I will be sending out the new 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 206 subscribers.

This week's issue contains reviews of three books (two fiction picture books and one title for middle schoolers), a children's literacy and reading news round-up, and two Kidlitosphere round-ups with links to useful posts from the week. I also have the announcement about the Cybils Award Winners. (Note that the winner list itself may not display in email, in which case you will need to click through to see it.) Finally, I have the first post of what I expect to be a new recurring feature: Reviews that Made Me Want the Book. Content published on my blog this week that's not included in the newsletter includes:

The Growing Bookworms newsletter contains 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!
