New Contest: Alec Flint, Super Sleuth
Thursday Afternoon Visits: Pre-ALA Version

Growing Bookworms Newsletter: June 25, 2008

Jpg_book009Today 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 290 subscribers.

This week I have two reviews (one for early elementary school kids, and one for later elementary school readers), a Kidlitosphere round-up with links to useful posts from the past week, and a list of Futuristic, Speculative, Science Fiction and Dystopian Fiction for Young Adults. I also have an announcement about the new issue of the online journal The Edge of the Forest, and an announcement about another book give-away contest (for Alec Flint: Super Sleuth, from Scholastic). The latter contest is first-come, first-served, so act fast if you're interested. Recent posts not included in the newsletter include:

This is a relatively short issue, because I was away for four days this past weekend without my computer, and I'm still catching up from that. I have been storing up some literacy news, though, and hope to get that posted soon. Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
