Growing Bookworms Newsletter: March 25

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 usually send the newsletter out every two weeks, but this time it's been three weeks, because I have been on vacation.

Newsletter Update: In this issue I have six children's 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 a review a of book for parents by Nancy Newman on Raising Passionate Readers

Reading Update: In the last three weeks I completed three middle grade, three young adult, and three adult titles. Very balanced reading indeed! I read/listened to:

I'm listening to Shadow Puppets by Orson Scott Card, and reading The Shining by Stephen King (another book I had not read in decades). The books my husband and I have been reading to our daughter can be found here (though the list is not quite up-to-date).

Our vacation was to Disney World, and my daughter spent considerable time prior to the trip, at her own initiative, catching up on Disney-themed books. Once we were there, I can't say we had as much time to read with her as I might have liked, but of course real life experiences are important, too. Her favorite book these days is Mitchell Goes Bowling by Hallie Durand and Tony Fucile. She was also quite thrilled when we went through today's many packages to find new Pinkalicious and Fancy Nancy paperbacks waiting.

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