Twitterville Talk #50

This is the latest news from the tweeters I follow on Twitter.  There were lots of new book recommendations.  With the last day of school approaching for many, how about trying Donalyn Miller's Book A Day Challenge?
Have a wonderful, restful and safe weekend.

If you are one of those people who are drawn to a blend of old with the new, then this gadget, The iPad Typewriter, is for you.  One thing is for sure, it's a conversation starter.

Newbery Award winner for The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman, gives a commencement speech to graduating students at Philadelphia's University of the Arts I wish I would have heard decades ago; simply amazing observations and advice.

Follow this link to an outstanding video prepared by the New York Public Library recommending books for teens for summer reading.

Thanks to School Library Journal for these tweets.

I finally received my copy of Emily Gravett's book titled, Again!  She shows how she creates her character in the video below.

There is something special about the sound of Betty White's voice.  Her reading of Harry the Dirty Dog is exquisite.

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