In Which I Admit to Some Hypocrisy Re: My Daughter's Reading

Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: September 29: #Cybils, #KidLitCon and #BannedBooksWeek

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. I had a rather challenging week, and my Twitter time was very limited. I did live-tweet the Cybils judge announcements, but have not shared those here. You can find the panel announcements as well as the category descriptions on the Cybils blog. Cybil nominations open Sunday, October 1st. Nominate your favorite (well-written and kid-friendly) children's and young adult titles by category.

I also shared a few KidLitCon-related reminders this week. Here's the gist:

Other topics this week include: #BannedBooksWeek, #BookList, #Cybils, #DiverseBooks, #GrowthMindset, #KidLitCon, #STEM, eBooks, emotional labor, gender equity, growing bookworms, parenting, reading community, and schools.
