Press Release Fun: New Children’s Book Group in NYC Alert
Keeping a bookgroup alive for kids can be difficult, but its not impossible! I like to keep my finger on the pulse of what’s out there, and now I’ve just heard of the latest bookgroup for the literary kiddos. Take note, parents of NYC! One of these days I’ll do a round-up of all the bookgroups open to the public that I know of. For now . . .
When we read together, we connect. Together, we see the world. Together, we see one another.” –Kate DiCamillo
