Greetings from the land of endless winter and twenty-inch March snowfalls!
Today I've got a little something different for you all. Instead of my usual Library Monday book review, I'm sharing this printable library list that I made, as well as a bit of news. I mentioned a couple of days ago that I've been working on a really fun project, and I figured that I might as well tell you a bit about it, so that maybe you'll be as excited as I am about its arrival in a couple of weeks.
I am planning to launch a quarterly e-magazine! It doesn't have a title just yet, but it will be filled with activities, tutorials and printables, all centered around the childhood experiences of reading, writing and storytelling. Each issue will have an overarching theme, and many of the featured activities will be rooted in favorite children's literature. There will be booklists, games, fun writing activities and bookmaking tutorials (of course).
The theme of the first issue will be "libraries," and along with the bookmaking and storybuilding activities that you'll find in every issue, Volume One will also feature printable pages designed to help your family get the very most out of your local library. The "library list" at the top of this post was something that I originally planned to include in the first issue of the magazine, but I kind of wanted something to give you now. Because I'm really excited about this project!
You can download the library list for printing here:
It has a place to note the author and title of any books that you might be wanting to find, and includes a handy little box by each line so that you can mark things off as they've been located, checked-out and read. Yay for that!
More about the magazine in days to come, but I hope to have it ready for launch two Library Mondays from today (also known as March 21st on regular calendars).
