The Children’s Bookshelf

The Children’s Bookshelf is now live, my weekly link-up for all children’s book related posts. Even if you are not a blogger, this weekly link-up is a great place to find new sites that review books for children as well as blogger who write book inspired activities for children.

Today, I would like to highlight that +Erica MomandKiddo  (What Do We Do All Day?) plus several of my other favorite bloggers are co-moderating a group on Google+ named Great Books for Kids.

Okay, I know. Only bloggers and social media buffs hang out on Google +.

But, if you will believe me, Google+ is my favorite place to hangout these days. True, all the plus signs and circles are a little confusing at the beginning, but once you get everything figured out your ability to access information on topics you love is awesome. Not to mention, Google+ puts a premium on privacy making it possible for you to easily share posts and photos with only who you want and even lock posts so that they can’t be shared outside your circles. I also love that you can add people to your circles, who aren’t on Google+ and still share things with them via email.

Up until recently, Google+ was pretty quiet, but since the rolling out of new communities that has changed significantly. The communities (similar to Facebook groups only better) allow sharing and following of information based on a single topic easily.

I would love to have you join my Great Books for Kids community where you can ask questions about books, talk about your own favorite books, or just follow the conversation.

I also have a +No Twiddle Twaddle page where I share each day’s post, plus other posts that I think my readers will like. And if you like, you can also check out my personal profile ( +Bethany Winston ) where I share more random but fun posts that aren’t blog related.

By the way, today we welcome several new co-hosts to The Children’s Bookshelf. I hope that you will check out their blogs!

    A wonderful list of books. I linked up one of my recommendations. Not sure if this is the right way to do it. Let me know if I am not doing it right.
