Links I Shared on Twitter this Week: February 2: Multicultural Books, #GrowthMindset, #Play, and Book Prizes + Awards
February 02, 2018
Here are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. Topics this week include: #BookLists, #Cybils Awards, #DiverseBooks, #GrowingBookworms, #GrowthMindset, #MCBD, #OwnVoices, #play, #Reading, #ReadingLogs, book awards, Doug Green, literacy, parenting, Rick Riordan, thrillers, and writing.
Also, since today is Groundhog Day, I'd like to share the link a book that I reviewed late last year: Groundhug Day by Anne Marie Pace and Christopher Denise. It's super-cute and well worth a look!
