News From the Library–May 28, 2012

Happy Summer 2012!

Summer is a great time to read and for this last post of the school year I have collected a number of links to reading lists. I think you’ll find something for everyone! It will remain on this blog until September.

So relax, kick back with a lemonade, and read, read read!

BookHive
BookHive is a web site designed for children ages birth through twelve, their parents, teachers or anyone interested in reading about children’s books. Providing reader’s advisory service, this site contains hundreds of recommended book reviews in a variety of reading levels and interest areas. Parents may find special “parental notes” attached to some reviews that provide additional information about the book. Users can search for books by author, title, reading level, interest area, number of pages, and even favorite illustrator.
