Tween Tuesday: Dork Diaries Giveaway

Tween Tuesday is a weekly meme to highlight great reads for tweens (and sometimes giveaways!) Join the fun and leave your link below.

Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not So Fabulous Life by Rachel Renee Russell

It's a known fact that if you work with tweens, you're going to be asked "I want books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid." When that happens, give them Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russell. The Dork Diaries books have a great sense of humor and Nikki gives us a great girl perspective into middle school. Nikki's at a new school and she feels like a dork. But really Nikki is a funny, creative, artist who lets readers peek into her diary and read her observations about middle school.

Want to win a Dork Diaries prize pack? I've got copies of
Dork Diaries 1 and 2 (thanks to the author) and a Slumber Party Cube from Table Topics (donted by Table Topics).
Open to ages 13+, US Address Only, Contest ends Oct 26, midnight CT

To Enter: Leave a comment and answer this fun Slumber Party question:
If you could only eat one dessert for the rest of your life what would you choose?

  4. Oooh...that's a toughie. I recently had a dessert called a pizookie while I was out west. It's a mostly baked cookie with icecream on top. I think I'd have to go with that. Yum.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
