Its been quiet at Young Book Love this month. If you have noticed, and are curious why I hope to answer a few of your questions below.
One year ago today, the first official book list was posted on the Young Book Love website. (It contained a great list of Wonder-like books you can find here.) Today almost 100 posts later, it is my honor to continue to help you, dear reader, discover books your kids will fall for.
To celebrate, I wanted to give back to you in the form of a giveaway.
Over the past year, I have highlighted my favorite books under the category of Shelf Talker. I love reading shelf talkers at books stores and libraries; they are helpful resources when deciding what book to buy or read. My hope is the Shelf Talkers on this blog provide the same kind of service for you.
There have been a total of 24 Shelf Talker posts over the past year. As I recently read through this list of books I couldn’t help thinking, “Oh, I love that book!,” an embarrassing number of times.
I decided these books were just so good, I had to pass them on in a more tangible way, which brings me to the giveaway!
Summer is fully here. For me, this means kids are home from school. It also means slower mornings, chores, vacations, baseball games, swimming pools and of course, lots of reading. This change in schedule also brings with it a lot less quiet and a lot more interruptions.
And that translates into the need for a few small changes to the blog. It means this post is really more for me than it is for you. While I say I am telling you what to expect, in reality I am giving myself permission to let go.
So, here is what you can expect and where you can find me this summer:
