August 3rd Children's Literacy Round-Up, KidLit Carnival, and Fairy-Tale Retellings

Terry_readingtubfinal_1 This week’s children’s literacy and reading news round-up, brought to you by Jen Robinson’s Book Page and Scrub-a-Dub-Tub, a Reading Tub blog, is now available at the Reading Tub. This week Terry Doherty and I have collected plenty of content for you about literacy & reading-related events; raising readers; literacy and reading programs and research; 21st century literacies; grants, sponsorships & donations; and other new resources.

Posts this week include a Country Musicians Rock and Read event, a host of summer reading efforts and suggestions, and the chance to order gorgeous Literacy Launchpad t-shirts (Early. Often. Always. Read to your child). Plus lots more, of course!

Terry mentioned this, but it bears linking here, too. Melissa Wiley has the new Carnival of Children's Literature (with highlights from June and July) now available at Here in the Bonny Glen. Do stop by - it's a wonderful celebration of children's books and reading.

Booklights I also have a new post up today at Booklights. Taking a page from Pam's Thursday Three posts, I share 3 very different fairy tale/fable retellings.

Wishing you all a lovely week. Can you believe that it's August already?
