GUEST BLOG: Reading At Lakeside Chautauqua

IMG_0572I am guest blogging today over on The Front Porch, the official blog of Lakeside Chautauqua. We’re headed to this lovely Ohio treasure next week to enjoy a relaxed week with family – including cousins! I will also be doing a special Christmas-themed story time at Green Gables (pictured above).  My topic today?  Reading!  So, grab a cup of coffee (or tea as I prefer) and head on over to the Front Porch. The breezes there are wonderful and the post, I hope, is inspiring.  Happy Thursday!

HEADS UP  ON A GREAT NEW RESOURCE FOR PARENTS, TEACHERS and KIDS!

The Society of Children’s Book Writer and Illustrators (SCBWI) has put together a SUMMER READING LIST for 2016 which includes books of all genres from SCBWI  authors and illustrators, including front list and backlist titles. Per their description “This is an opportunity to find that book that a kid or teen will enjoy and can engage with the fun and adventure of reading. Authors and illustrators from close to your hometown to those around the world are featured on the List. The Lists will be published bi-annually this year in the Summer and Winter.”
