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 260 subscribers.
This week's issue is a bit long, because I wasn't able to send out the newsletter last week. I have a review of the latest Percy Jackson book, an installment of my "reviews that made me want to read the book" feature, two children's literacy and reading news round-ups, three Kidlitosphere round-ups with links to useful posts from the past two weeks, an announcement about the upcoming Kidlitosphere conference (in Portland in September), and a report describing Rick Riordan's recent signing event in San Jose. Recent posts not included in this newsletter include:
- An announcement about the summer blog blast tour (a series of author interviews hosted by some terrific blogs).
- An announcement about the May issue of the online journal The Edge of the Forest.
- A meme containing some information about myself.
- A post about how wonderful it is to see people who love what they do.
- A post describing three recent book awards.
More reviews coming next week, I promise. My schedule is finally clearing a bit. Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
