This afternoon I will be sending out the new issue of the 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. There are currently more than 250 subscribers.
This week I have one new book review, of A Visitor for Bear, by Bonny Becker (illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton). I also have an interview with Melanie Watt, author of the Scaredy Squirrel books, a children's literacy and reading news round-up, a Kidlitosphere round-up with links to useful posts from the week, and an announcement about Drop Everything and Read Day (D.E.A.R. day). Recent posts not included in this newsletter include:
- One last note about my recent move.
- A lament for some beloved books of mine that I recently learned were lost.
I'm going to be traveling and having visitors for the next week or so, and I may not be able to get out an issue next week. But I will be getting back up to full strength, and with more reviews, after that. Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
