Tonight 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 300 subscribers.
This week I have several short Kidlitosphere round-ups with links to useful posts from the past two weeks, a round-up of recent children's literacy and reading news, and an interview and discussion of early chapter books with author Gail Gauthier. I also have an installment of my reviews that made me want to read the book feature, and a post inspired by a recent rant on musty summer reading lists from The Reading Zone. Recent posts not included in the newsletter include:
- A high-level post, followed by a more detailed, illustrated post, about my recent trip to the American Library Association conference in Anaheim.
- A list of the 96 books (including picture books) that I read during the first half of the year.
I'm hoping to start catching up on reviews later this week. I've been reading some great books, and will share some with you next week. Meanwhile, you can find several early reader recommendations in the Gail Gauthier interview. Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
