TwitterLinksHere are highlights from the links that I shared on Twitter this week @JensBookPage. Topics this jam-packed week include #Audiobooks, #BookLists, #Bullying, #FreeSpeech, #GraphicNovels, #GrowingBookworms, #HigherEd, #IntrinsicMotivation, #KidLitCon, #Preschool, #ReadAloud, #SchoolLibraries, #ScreenTime, #SpellingBee, #STEM, #SummerReading, #TeacherPay, gender, libraries, math, parenting, reading, research, and writing.
