Tonight I will be sending out the fourth 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 book (two for young adults and two for preschool/early elementary school readers), my weekly round-up of literacy news, a Kidlitosphere round-up with links to useful posts from the week, and a recap of my experiences at last weekend's National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) conference in New York.
The only post from my blog that's not included in the newsletter this week is an announcement and illustrator list for the first auction of the Robert's Snow: For Cancer's Cure event. If you are looking for a unique and lovely holiday gift for someone, one of these snowflakes would be an excellent choice. And your money will help the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute via the Jimmy Fund.
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 have time 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, 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 a Happy Thanksgiving to all of my US (and ex-pat) readers.
