I call this design “embroidery DNA.” I could iron out the twist, but I happen to like it. I’m making a longer one.
Living as I do in two professional worlds–writing/reading and needlework–I often find it hard to keep up with current industry news and events. There seem to be as many literacy programs and events every week as there are books on my reading list.
In truth, I can’t keep up with one industry’s news, let alone both, so I am grateful for the Children’s Literacy Round-Up offered every Monday at, alternately, Jen Robinson’s Book Page and Scrub-a-Dub-Tub, a Reading Tub blog. This week’s Round-Up is on Jen’s blog here. Next Monday, it will be at Scrub-a-Dub-Tub.
These two bloggers, Jen and Terry, collect their favorite articles, events, and bits of literacy news throughout the week then post summaries and links on Mondays. I love this resource! It makes me feel connected, even if it’s the only literacy-related news I catch in a given week.
I hope you’ll check it out.
