Growing Bookworms Newsletter: February 18

JRBPlogo-smallToday I will be sending out a 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. I currently send the newsletter out every two weeks.

Newsletter Update: In this issue I have five book reviews (picture book through young adult), one installment of my new #KidLitFaves series, and two posts with literacy and reading links that I shared on Twitter recently.I also have one post with a new Literacy Milestone for my daughter.

Not included in the newsletter, I shared one post announcing the winners of the 2014 Cybils Awards. 

Reading Update: In the last two weeks I completed two middle grade, three young adult, and three adult titles. A good reading fortnight! I read/listened to:

I'm reading Strike, the final book in D. J. MacHale's Sylo Chronicles trilogy. I'm listening to Hollow City by Ransom Riggs, the second book about Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children. The books my husband and I have been reading to my daughter can be found here.

My daughter pleased me very much yesterday. When she came home from school I told her that a package had come for. She replied: "I hope it's a book!" Yes, that's my not-such-a-baby bookworm. She also surprised me yesterday by asking for "that book where the author and the illustrator are in the story." Which turned out to be Chloe and the Lion by Mac Barnett and Adam Rex, which we hadn't read for months. A good book stays with you, I guess. We are also, after seeing the movie, reading Paddington stories frequently. 

What are you and your family reading these days? Thanks for reading the newsletter, and for growing bookworms.
