Here are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. There is a ton of great stuff this week. I think people are back from the summer and focusing on books and literacy (plus the #Cybils Awards and #KidLitCon are moving forward). Other topics this week include #BookLists, #ComputerScience, #GrowingBookworms, #KidLitCares, #nonfiction, #STEM, #SummerReading, friendship, parenting, reading levels, rewards, and schools.
