Growing Bookworms Newsletter: May 13, 2008

Jpg_book007Tonight I will be sending out the new issue of the 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. There are currently more than 260 subscribers.

This week I have two picture book reviews, a young adult review (The Compound), an installment of my "reviews that made me want to read the book" feature, a children's literacy and reading news round-up, a Kidlitosphere round-up with links to useful posts from the week, an announcement about RIF's Reading is Fun week, and a post about the six criteria that I use in selecting and evaluating books (my 6 P's of Book Appreciation). Recent posts not included in this newsletter include:

  • An announcement about an article that I recently had published in Escape Adulthood Magazine (about why adults should continue reading children's books), together with some links about finding your passion.
  • An announcement about a book previously viewed (the dead and the gone) now available for purchase.
  • A link to a post well worth reading asking why our kids don't read more.

It's great to feel like I'm finally getting the blog back on track. Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
