Children's Literacy and Reading News Roundup: Early April Edition
Happy Birthday, Baby Bookworm!

Growing Bookworms Newsletter: April 4

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 1375 subscribers. Currently I am sending the newsletter out once every two weeks.

Newsletter Update: In this issue I have four book review posts (all picture books and board books) and two children's literacy roundups (one published here and one at Rasco from RIF). I also have a Booklights reissue post about favorite fictional houses from children's literature. All of my posts from the past two weeks are included in the newsletter.

Reading Update: Since the last newsletter, I finished only two books (besides picture books and board books, see those here and here):

  • Tim Egan: Dodsworth in Rome. Houghton Mifflin Books for Children. Completed April 1, 2011. I adore Dodsworth and the Duck!
  • Carrie Ryan. The Dark and Hollow Places (Book 3 of the Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy). Random House. Completed March 31, 2011.

Reviews to come. I'm still listening to the latest book in Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series, Bury Your Dead, and reading D.E. Stevenson's Celia's House aloud to Baby Bookworm.

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