A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this site is perfect for young book lovers looking for new reading material. The site doesn't hawk any products; it just gives grade-schoolers and tweens some great ideas and recommendations for books that they might not otherwise find. The site does provide a link to Amazon for most titles, so kids may need a little encouragement to go browse their local library and borrow the books before deciding they need to buy them.
Is It Any Good?
Kids who devour books and are constantly seeking new reading material will find lots of great ideas and recommendations at this site.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
