Finding Books

Many times I get asked, where do you find reviews of books? I use to always answer in professional journals and I do still use them, but lately have been dropping in on new sources-- book blogs.

The part of the blogsphere dedicated to books is called "kidlitosphere" where a group of people (authors, librarians, readers) are dedicated to getting information out about kids' books. Diverse opinions, extended reviews, and ability to make connections with other readers are what make these blogs so wonderful. There are blogs dedicated to picture books, middle school student titles, book discussion, and blogs for those sci-fi and fantasy fans all for k-12 students.
I will include Book Blog Links on the Link Bar and also will be including it on the Online Sources page on the PTS Website. Hope you find them as amazing as I do! Here's a couple to get you started:

Thanks for spreading the JOMB word!

Maybe you'll send us an audio review of a favourite children's book to include in our podcast...
