Yes, She Is My Daughter: Growing a Bookworm
Mix it Up! by Herve Tullet

Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: August 22

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. The new Cybils website launched late last week, and the call for judges for 2014 was released on Monday, so there are quite a few Cybils-related links. The KidLitCon program is shaping up nicely (due out next week), and there are a few links there, too. Other topics this week include book lists, back to school books, growing bookworms, parenting, publishing, reading, schools, libraries, and summer reading.
