From Chalk & Talk Blog, December 2010
Getting Kids Reading Blog:
- Every Canadian in grade one gets a free picture book in October (well, December but what a perfect book this year for the Christmas/Winter Break).
Story Snoops Blog: Judge a book by more than its cover
The StorySnoops are a group of San Francisco-based parents who seek to engender the love of reading in their children. This is a parent-to-parent selection tool. Share this with parents: Let [the Story Snoops] take the guess work out of buying [YA Lit] with some ideas for young readers on your [seasonal buying] list. [They’ve] organized the holiday list by age and gender, with books [they] loved this year. [They] define Tweens as kids aged roughly 9-12, and Teens are 12 and up.
NOTE: Just make sure they shop at Kidsbooks for advice on our great Canadian offerings as well.
