TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. Topics this week include #BookLists (many, with Thanksgiving and kindness-related themes), #DiverseBooks, #KidLitCon, #PictureBooks, book awards, book talks, boys and reading, easy readers, gift guides, librarians, screen time, and teaching. I'm posting this a bit early because of the holiday. Wishing you all a joyful Thanksgiving and a peaceful start to the holiday season.
