Booklights Interview/Profile at the Reading Tub

Booklights Terry Doherty from The Reading Tub (and my partner for the weekly children's literacy round-ups) was kind enough to do a profile and round-table interview with the Booklights team. She says:

What do you get when you combine the integrity of PBS Parents, three power-house book bloggers (who also happen to be moms, librarians, and literacy specialists), and a college professor? An incredible blog, energized by a team of women who are passionate about inspiring a love of reading in children and their caregivers.

There are references to "luminaries" (I don't think that I've ever been called a luminary before), favorite picture books, ways of reaching out to a broader audience, and ... telepathy. Those of you who know Susan, Pam, Gina, and myself, guess which of us said:

"I don’t know about the others, but I’ve been working on a whole telepathy thing on the side. It’s been pretty disappointing so far."

Terry_readingtubfinal_1 I'm obviously biased, but I think that Terry did an amazing job coming up with questions, and assembling the responses, to give readers a genuine picture of Booklights. I hope that you'll check it out!
