Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: October 28: Halloween Books, Audiobooks + #MathematicalMindsets

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. I was actually on vacation in Hawaii for most of the week, so this post is a bit late and a little shorter than usual. But I did manage to save some links about #BookLists, #Math, #STEM, 90 Second Newbery, audiobooks, boys and reading, coding, Geisel Award, growing bookworms, Halloween, parenting, raising readers, reading levels, schools, and screentime (or lack thereof). Happy reading!
