Growing Bookworms Newsletter: December 20: 12th Blog Birthday Edition
The Secret Sheriff of Sixth Grade: Jordan Sonnenblick

Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: December 22: Bookish Gifts, A Readerly Life, and Literacy via #GraphicNovels

TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. Topics during this relatively light week include #BookLists, #Cybils, #GiftGuides, #GraphicNovels, #GrowingBookworms, #PictureBooks, #STEM, Christmas, creativity, schools, and science.

I suspect, with the holidays coming up, and my daughter out of school for the next two weeks, that this will be my last post of the year. Wishing all who celebrate it a joyous Christmas, and a happy and healthy New Year to all. Thanks for reading!
