The end of January children’s literacy and reading news round-up, brought to you by Jen Robinson’s Book Page, Scrub-a-Dub-Tub, and Rasco from RIF is now available at Rasco from RIF. Over the past couple of weeks Carol Rasco, Terry Doherty, and I have collected content for you about literacy & reading-related events; literacy and reading programs and research; and suggestions for growing bookworms.
What's especially useful in Carol's end of month roundups, I think, is her Looking Ahead section, in which she highlights upcoming events of interest to proponents of children's books and literacy. This month, she has everything from Black History Month to Bubble Gum Day. Do click through to see! She's also found a very fun Chalk Board Tee.
A couple of other piece of news came in a little too late to make the roundup:
1. The January Carnival of Children's Literature is now available at the Challenging the Bookworm Blog. There are a ton of interesting links this month - definitely not to be missed for fans of children's literature.
2. One of the longest-running blogs of the Kidlitosphere now has a new name and a new home. Tasha Saecker of Kids Lit is moving to a new library system. Her blog will now be called Waking Brain Cells. Safe to say that she'll continue to provide a wide range of children's book reviews, along with other KidLit news (award announcements, etc.). Please do take a moment to update your blogrolls to replace Kids Lit with Waking Brain Cells. Tasha is one of the most knowledgeable, consistent, generous bloggers around, and she is well worth following to her new home.
3. Today's Nonfiction Monday roundup is at The Miss Rumphius Effect.
I'll have the early February roundup available first thing next week. Thanks for reading!
