Growing Bookworms Newsletter: January 29, 2008

Jpg_book007Tonight I will be sending out the new issue of my Growing Bookworms weekly email newsletter. If you would like to subscribe, you can find a sign-up form here. The Growing Bookworms newsletter contains content from my blog focused on children's books and raising readers, all in a convenient email format. There are currently 184 subscribers.

This week's issue contains reviews of four books (one fiction picture book, one nonfiction picture book, and two young adult titles), my children's literacy and reading news round-up, and a Kidlitosphere round-up with links to useful posts from the week. I also have a recap of a recent reading my new National Ambassador for Young People's Literature Jon Scieszka, complete with photos. I had no other blog posts this week - everything that I wrote is included in the newsletter.

The Growing Bookworms newsletter contains 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, or 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!
