Monday Afternoon Visits: March 15: Kidlitosphere News and Views
Pink Me Up: Charise Mericle Harper: Picture Book Review

Growing Bookworms Newsletter: March 16

Jpg_book007Tonight I will be sending out the new issue of the Growing Bookworms 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. It is sent out once every two weeks. There are currently 1046 subscribers.

Newsletter Update: In this issue I have five book reviews (two picture books, two books for upper middle grade/middle school readers, and one book for young adults), one post with Kidlitosphere news, and one post with an important piece of personal news.

I also have a post about Day 5 of the Share a Story - Shape a Future literacy blog tour (a cross-blog celebration of books and literacy), which replaced the children's literacy roundups these past couple of weeks. I had other Share a Story posts during the week (Day 1, Day 1 Part 2, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4), but haven't included those in the newsletter. You can find instead a concise wrap-up of the posts from Share a Story that I found most relevant for parents at Booklights. Also at Booklights, I shared Tip #9 in my Tips for Growing Bookworms series, this one about keeping books handy throughout your home.  

Reading Update: I read a host of picture books during the past couple of weeks, as well as three middle grade, two young adult, and two adult titles. It feels good to have my reading and reviewing grooves back, after an off month in February. Here's the list: 

How about you? What have you been reading and enjoying? Thanks for reading the newsletter, and for growing bookworms.
