Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: December 2: Gift Guides, Long-Distance Reading, and Homework-Free Holidays

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. It's been a bit of a light week for links, as people ease their way back in after the Thanksgiving holiday. But I do have some links for you about #BookLists, #PictureBooks, book awards, book drive, diversity, e-books, gift guides, gifted-and-talented programs, growing bookworms, homework, Native American Heritage Month, reading aloud, and reading levels. Happy reading!
