I can’t add … I can’t tell time! Somehow my Nonfiction Monday book review posted before the Roundup. Doh! Sorry, Jen …
This week Jen Robinson is hosting our children’s literacy and reading news round-up. The roundups are brought to you by Jen Robinson’s Book Page and Scrub-a-Dub-Tub, a Reading Tub blog. Jen and I collected plenty of content for you about literacy and reading-related events; raising readers; literacy and reading programs and research; 21st century literacies; grants, sponsorships and donations; and other new resources. We hope you’ll find some useful information.
Pam Coughlan is hosting Nonfiction Monday at MotherReader today. Last week, Pam was claiming that she’s been lazy this summer. Huh. Could have fooled me. Let’s help her get out of her slump … send her some great nonfiction for kids!
We are taking advantage of Bill having NO travel in August to do some family traveling of our own. We’ve packed a suitcase and some books, but no computers. I’ll be back later this week. Update: We haven’t left yet. Yours truly sprained her ankle on Friday and hiking is no longer on her calendar. I don’t recommend this as a tactic to find a way to sit by the pool and read.
