Today I will be sending out the new issue of the Growing Bookworms 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. It is sent out once every two weeks (if you are getting daily Feedblitz updates, you might prefer to sign up for the Growing Bookworms newsletter instead, and only receive one email every two weeks). There are currently 948 subscribers to the newsletter.
Newsletter Update: In this issue, I have three book reviews and one announcement about a book previously reviewed that is now available. I also have a children's literacy round-up (details available at The Reading Tub) and two posts with Kidlitosphere news. Not included in the newsletter, I have:
- Two posts at Booklights, one with children's literacy links for parents, and the other describing some of my favorite fictional houses from children's literature.
- A detailed recap of the recent Kidlitosphere Conference, held in Washington, DC.
