#1. "The Case For Rereading Ramona As An Adult"
written by Jessica Plummer @BookRiot on BookRiot.com https://bookriot.com/rereading-ramona-as-an-adult/
Beloved children's author Beverly Cleary passed away on March 25th at the age of 104. As an author, Ms. Cleary wrote wonderful books with engaging, realistic characters that have stood the test of time. Her books were a part of my own reading history, and I felt a sense of nostalgia as I read Jennifer Plummer's heartwarming article about the Ramona books, and the unforgetable character of Ramona. This article is well worth the time to read, and I promise you will finish with a longing to read a few of your childhood books as an adult.
- I attended the virtual event, "Bilbliotherapy as Self Care"
with literacy teacher educator and author Stephanie Affinito @affinitolit, It was a great conversation that answered the questions:
Why is a strong reading life essential to our physical and mental well-being?
- What is bibliotherapy and how can we use it to help us live curiously and grow through what we go through?
- What are some simple, yet impactful, ways to cultivate your reading life and which books might we start with?
