Books, Bytes and Bits – Oh My!

Yep, that’s what I’m blogging about these days as associate editor for CarolinaParent.com’s blog page. At the beginning of each month, I’ll post “Books, Bytes and Bits” of information geared toward educating children – and their parents. I hope you’ll check it out.

This month, in my debut blog post, I offer two back-to-school prize sets: one for children age 2-9, the other for children age 10-14. Just post a comment offering your best back-to-school tip and indicating what age group’s prize you’d like to go for to be eligible for one of the prizes. (Hint: one of them involves a Batman Flashdrive!)

Nearly everyday, I receive packages filled with wonderful children’s books to review for our “Book Nook” section in Carolina Parent magazine, so please pick up our latest issue for brief reviews of the latest and greatest children’s books.

I also put together a “Bulletin Board” of news briefs focusing on family-friendly resources, events and organizations throughout the Triangle. Know of a special child who has served his or her community by initiating a service project? Please email your lead to me for our monthly “Kids Who Make a Difference” spotlight. I’m truly amazed by the children Carolina Parent has spotlighted in the past, and know there are plenty more out there. I just need your help finding them!

As I launch this new career with Carolina Parent magazine, I look forward to continuing the company’s tradition of offering Triangle families the best editorial content – in print and online – this side of the Piedmont. Feel free to drop me a line at bshugg@carolinaparent.com.
