Whether you are a parent, teacher, librarian, voracious reader, or some delightful combination of the above, we hope you’ll find the resources at ‘Happening in Your Head’ useful.  These resources include:

  • Book recommendations and reviews
  • Reader-related news
  • Analysis of pop-culture adaptations of children’s literature (we have *a lot* of feelings on Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events)
  • Links to other websites — for further exploration on any and all of the topics ‘Happening in Your Head’ touches upon
  • Programming and activity ideas for teachers/librarians/homeschooling parents
