Weekly Topic Inspiration (formerly HubMob): Books for children

  1. Jason Menayan profile image60
    Jason Menayanposted 5 years ago

    Happy Monday, everyone! (and a Happy Memorial Day to American Hubbers)

    You might have read in our blog about the new incarnation of the fantastic HubMob program which was run by Princessa, rmcrayne, wyanjen, and Shirley Anderson. It's called the Weekly Topic Inspiration and works substantially the same way. It's a great way to get topics when your own well of inspiration runs dry, and to participate in a community project of adding a new group of high-quality Hubs on a certain topic. Every week has a different topic to help get your creative juices flowing.

    Participation is easy. All you have to do is follow these directions below.

    1)    Click here to visit this week's topic.
    2)    Click the green button "answer this question".
    3)    Click the gray button below the box (leave that empty) that says "make a Hub about it."
    4)    Give your Hub a very specific title, like Books for 3 year olds, Ebooks for children or Coloring books about animals.
    5)    Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
    6)    After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this forum thread and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.

    Have fun, everyone!

    Hmmm... I will have to give it some thought.  My all-time favorite children's books from my childhood are long-since out of print and hard to find.
    Don't know that those would make a very good topic...

    Ok, since my master's is in education and this is kinda like what I do for a REAL living, I couldn't pass this up.  I wrote about chapter books and why you should keep reading with your children even when they're not little anymore:

        Thanks, Cara! I try to keep it under wraps.  Some not very nice people on here said it was a "non-degree."  I worked my fanny off for that non-degree! smile

          Wow!  I guess I worked my fanny off for the same non-degree!!!  I'd like to see some of those people get that non-degree

            Evidently, they've never seen the bumper sticker that says, "If you can read this, thank a teacher!" 

            That's OK, one day we non-degree people will rule the world!

      Jason - thanks for continuing the HubMob tradition and Inspiration is a great choice of names for this.  Also thanks to Princessa, Shirley Anderson, rmcrayne and wynanjen for the great job they did with the HubMob.

    This is a completely self-centered hub, since these are all books that I enjoyed when I was a child, but I'm hoping my daughters will enjoy them, as well.

    This is a good topic and having had two young children (now adults) of my own along with numerous nieces and nephews (also now adults) whom I enjoyed reading to when they were young, I decided to do a second Hub on this topic.  In this one, I stretched the topic a bit and wrote about entertaining and interacting with young children by making up and telling your own stories.  Here is a link to it:

    By the time I was ten I was familiar with the gist of the stories from the great masters- Dickens, Hugo, Verne, Wells, Bronte, Shakespeare, Twain... even Dostoyevsky!

    All thanks to the wonderful world of Classics Illustrated.

    Here's hoping another generation gets to enjoy them...
