Today 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 1054 subscribers.
Newsletter Update: In this issue I have six book reviews (three picture books and three one books for young adults), two posts with Kidlitosphere news, and two children's literacy round-ups (one here in full and one published at The Reading Tub). I also have a fun quick post about a father and daughter who read aloud together for 3218 nights in a row.
The only posts from the blog this week that I didn't include in the newsletter were a press release about the Curious George exhibit at the Jewish Museum and a response to a School Library Journal article about a Lois Lowry book that's ended up linked to a political conflict between the US and Turkey.
I also shared some additional children's literacy links, aimed especially at parents, at Booklights. Also at Booklights, I published Tip #10 in my Tips for Growing Bookworms series, about occasionally letting kids stay up late reading under the covers.
Reading Update: I read four new picture books during the past couple of weeks (plus a variety of re-reads), as well as four young adult titles. Additional reviews will be forthcoming for some of these titles.
