Tonight I will be sending out the fifth issue of my Growing Bookworms weekly email newsletter. If you would like to subscribe, you can find a sign-up form here (just remember that you have to click the link in the confirmation email from FeedBlitz in order to activate your subscription). The Growing Bookworms newsletter contains content from my blog focused on children's books and raising readers. This week's issue contains reviews of four books (one picture book, two early middle grade, and one YA), my weekly round-up of literacy news, and a Kidlitosphere round-up with links to useful posts from the week. I also have an article with ten tips for growing bookworms. Be sure to click through to read the comments on that one, because there are some other excellent suggestions there. See also this post at The Miss Rumphius Effect on the same topic.
Posts from my blog this week not in the newsletter include:
- The final List of 2007 Cybils MG/YA Nonfiction Nominations (45 great nonfiction titles).
- A Thanksgiving post about some things for which I am grateful.
- Links to downloadable Readergirlz bookmarks, each containing a recommended book list for teen girls on a particular topic.
The Growing Bookworms newsletter will continue to contain a subset of content already included on my blog, Jen Robinson's Book Page, for readers who may not choose to visit the blog every day. It is also my hope that parents, authors, teachers, librarians, and other adult fans of children's books, people who may not visit blogs regularly at all, will learn about and subscribe to the newsletter. If you could pass it along to any friends or colleagues who you think would be interested, I would be very grateful.
Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
