NIE BOOK COLUMNS

Newsbee’s pleased share his newest literacy project, Baby Buzz, a book column for parents, caretakers and teachers of little ones, birth to age 3.

Parent educators help Newsbee select one quality picture book each month for the wee ones. Then the child experts write a review which you can feature in your community newspaper. For information on how to receive the Baby Buzz column, email Chris Stuckenschneider at cstucky@me.com.

The Missouri Press Foundation offers two other monthly book columns available to newspapers at no cost through its Newspapers In Education program. Check out what author Chris Stuckenschneider has ready for your newspaper.

Hello, Friends: Newsbee's the name, reading's my game. Each month, I select three books - preschool through eighth grade - chosen to fit a particular theme. These are my Book Buzz Picks and I announce them in the newspaper. A honey of an idea, don't you think? What better place to introduce kids to good books than on the pages of their local newspaper?

True stories and pretend tales too, I've got them all. And in some newspapers, young readers get to write to me and tell me what they think of my Picks. It's a book club in the newspaper! They swarm to see their reviews published in their hometown newspaper.

There are so many ways a newspaper can use my Picks. The word around the hive is that newspapers that have invited me to appear on their pages are mighty glad they did. Be a hero in your hometown - download my monthly Book Buzz Picks through Missouri Press Foundation. To access the monthly Picks, click here and use the following CODE format: the word buzz, then month (first three letters), then year (last two numbers) -- all lowercase and without spaces. Example: buzzfeb11.


Here's a "Novel Idea." How about giving adult readers of your community newspaper a heads-up on just-released books? After many requests, the Washington Missourian is making its popular book column, "Novel Ideas," free to newspapers nationwide.

The column has become well-respected by book publishers nationwide. Rather than being a review column, "Novel Ideas" is a book suggestion column. Author Chris Stuckenschneider chooses three books each month to share with readers.

The column averages about 600 words per month. The column and cover images are available for download through the Missouri Press Foundation. To get started publishing "Novel Ideas" in your newspaper click HERE and use the following CODE format: the word novel, then month (first three letters), then year (last two numbers) -- all lowercase and without spaces. Example: novelfeb11
