Here are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. Topics this week include #BlackHistoryMonth, #BookGivingDay, #BookLists, #bullying, #Cybils, #Parenting, #PeterRabbit, #RaisingReaders, #ReadAloud, #reading, #STEM, book awards, homeschooling, libraries, and schools.
Also, please note that the Cybils award winners will be announced on Valentine's Day, February 14, at 9:30 am Pacific Time. Tune in to http://www.Cybils.com/blog to find high-quality, kid-friendly titles honored in categories ranging from fiction picture books to board books to young adult nonfiction, including poetry, graphic novels, and speculative fiction. Bloggers have been reading and reviewing and discussing books in each category since the fall, and the winners they have selected (not to mention the fabulous shortlists) are well worth a look!
