This evening 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 280 subscribers.
This week I have four reviews (two for elementary school kids, one for middle schoolers, and one for high school readers and above), a children's literacy and reading news round-up, a Kidlitosphere round-up with links to useful posts from the past week, and an edition of my reviews that made me want the book feature. I also have a post, in honor of Father's Day, about the best and worst fathers from my children's and young adult reading so far in 2008. And, as a special treat, I have a post with details about a giveaway by which I'm offering (with thanks to the publisher) five copies of The Adoration of Jenna Fox. Recent posts not included in the newsletter include:
- A post about the book release party being held at Kepler's Books for the fourth book in Stephenie Meyers' Twilight series, Breaking Dawn.
- An announcement about an author chat that Readergirlz will be having on Thursday evening with Laurie Halse Anderson.
- An announcement about two children's book blogger events being held at the upcoming ALA Conference in Anaheim (which I'll be attending).
- An announcement from RIF about a reading activity book that they recently published.
I should have some other reviews and Kidlitosphere news coming up in the next couple of days. Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
