This afternoon 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 more than 200 subscribers.
This week's issue contains reviews of three books (one fiction picture book and two titles 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 second post of my 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:
- An announcement about a Readergirlz chat with Nikki Grimes that took place last week.
- A post about the next steps for supporting RIF in their current federal funding challenge. (This is different from last week's post)
If you enjoy the Growing Bookworms newsletter, please consider passing it along to any friends or colleagues who you think would be interested. Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
