We got exciting news just before Thanksgiving, and today it became”official” ~ my stupendous co-blogger has been selected as a Scholastic News Kids Press reporter for 2012-13!


It’s a very cool program – you can read about it here and here.

‘LitKid’ put a lot of time and thought into her application, which included doing an interview and writing an article about her community. She interviewed an amazing local activist and advocate who helped create a organization that supports responsible growth – including policies supporting clean water, quality public education, mass transit, etc. – in our area, which is growing by leaps and bounds.

I’m convinced that the cheerleading and encouraging feedback from her faithful and enthusiastic “Lost in a Book” readers gave LitKid the enthusiasm and confidence that will help her be a great Scholastic Kid Reporter – thanks so much for your support!
