Information About Books and Authors
This is an excellent source of lots of information about children’s books. I belong to their listserv and I love reading the entries. Scroll down and click on The Children’s Literature Database.
Don’t forget his great database that our School Library System has purchased for our use. There are links to lessons, videos, and readings by the author.
Reviews and lesson plans of specific books; search by author or title
Search author’s name
An excellent site all about children’s and young adult literature; Kay Vandergift is an outstanding teacher at Rutgers and her site has many good ideas for things to look for when you are considering books.
Guides to specific novels; many are broken links, but many are useful
Reviews of current literature. Quite complete information.
Wonderful organization that promotes and supports children's literature. Look for the lists of notable books by year.
