Hey Reading with Children Community members,
Just checking in with a clarification on community guidelines. I love the posts, book reviews, app reviews, and questions that everyone posts here. However, when you share a link, please leave a blurb of introduction to the post. You can ask a question to generate discussion, or explain how the post or product will be helpful for parents or teachers. When members just drop a link, it generally goes to a spam area and I have to go in and approve the posts. I don't generally make it over here every day. So, if you are just dropping links, it's likely to never get seen. You all have great info to share, so let's make sure it gets seen! Thanks!
