Twitterville Talk #48

There was much on Twitter about the celebrating of the Children's Choice Book Awards and Children's Book Week.  Everyone seems to be gearing up for summer reading.  My stacks are continuing to grow.  What do you have planned for your summer reading?

This poster about reading, posted on Facebook by Burning Through The Pages, should be hanging in every classroom.
Thanks to Literacyhead for the tweet.

Here's yet another poster about reading and favorite books that should hang in every classroom.
Thanks to Chronicle Books for the retweet.

Next year readers are in for a treat.  Fifteen illustrators have been asked by Scholastic to collaborate on picturing America The Beautiful.  Thanks to John Hendrix for sharing this information and his art for this title.

Children's Book Week 2012 has nearly come to a close but I could look at all these posters from earlier celebrations again and again.

Children's Choice Book Awards Red Carpet Interviews can be seen here.

Thanks to the Children's Book Council for these links.
