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 (mostly Terry, this time around) have collected plenty of content for you about literacy & reading-related events; literacy and reading programs and research; 21st century literacies; and grants, sponsorships & donations.
The events section covers Banned Book Week, the upcoming Teen Read Week, and the National Book Festival (particularly "the unveiling of The Exquisite Corpse Adventure. Every two weeks, authors and illustrators will release new episodes in this year-long saga".) Terry also has a lovely, separate post in honor of Banned Book Week, or, as she likes to say, Celebrate Reading Week.
As for me, I have a new post up today at Booklights about my Five Favorite Fictional Towns from Children's Literature. Can you guess what they are? After a long weekend away, I look forward to catching back up on the other blogs soon. Wishing you all a great week!
