Robin is first and foremost a mom. She is also the Executive Director of the Children’s Book Council, the national trade association of children’s book publishers, and Every Child a Reader, the industry’s literacy foundation. As a mom and a book person, Robin's worlds often collide in a very positive way. This blog is Robin’s way of sharing with parents, librarians and teachers the great opportunities and information about wonderful new books that come her way.
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ~Charles W. Eliot

Robin's Roundup is taking a vacation break. I'll be back blogging on January 3, 2011. I wish my family, friends, followers and visitors a joyous holiday and a very happy new year. Between the e-books stored on my Kindle and the physical books I just can't give up, I'm planning to do a lot of reading over the next couple of weeks and I imagine we'll have lots to discuss when I get back. Feel free to post a comment in my absence and let me know what you're reading.
