Taking a Sabbatical from Reviewing Children’s Books

When I started Wrapped in Foil blog on January 6, 2009 I wrote, “Seems to be a little crazy to be starting another blog right now.” I went ahead and did it anyway. Now seven years later, it’s time to take a break.

The reason I will no longer be posting here isn’t very dramatic. It’s simply because I’m writing a novel (or two or three) and I have too many blogs to keep them all active at the same time. As a very wise woman recently told me, we don’t have forever to complete our projects. It’s time for me to do my own writing, unfortunately at the expense of promoting other people’s books and children’s literacy.

I want to thank my loyal followers and fellow bloggers for being such a wonderful children’s book community. I will miss you.

If you would like to continue following my work, please visit It’s a Mystery Blog or Roberta Gibson Writes where I’ll be sharing information about my writing journey. I will also still review children’s science books at Growing With Science and Science Books for Kids.  Hope to see you there.
