Five Favorite Fictional Houses from Children's Literature: A Booklights Reissue

Growing Bookworms Newsletter: March 22

Jpg_book007Today 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 and young adult books and raising readers. There are 1372 subscribers. Currently I am sending the newsletter out once every two weeks.

Newsletter Update: In this relatively short issue I have four book reviews (1 picture book and 3 middle grade books) and one post introducing a new board book series. I also have a Booklights reissue post about favorite fictional towns from children's literature.

ShareAStoryLogo-color There are no children's literacy round-ups this time around. Terry Doherty, Carol Rasco, and I took a break from the mid-month round-up because we put so much energy into the Share a Story - Shape a Future literacy blog tour. Terry recently put together a detailed post with links to the many Share a Story posts celebrating the Gift of Literacy. I can't recommend these posts highly enough - many excellent bloggers and literacy advocates contributed personal stories and inspiration, as well as concrete suggestions, for unwrapping the gift of literacy. I hope you'll check it out!

Not included in the newsletter this week, I shared:

Book Reading Update: Since the last newsletter, I finished only two books (besides picture books and board books, see those here. We just passed 400 books read to Baby Bookworm for the year):

I've just started listening to the latest book in Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series, Bury Your Dead. I'm reading D.E. Stevenson's Celia's House aloud to Baby Bookworm (no, it's not a children's book, but she hasn't complained - this is one of my favorite comfort reads).  

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