I’m very excited to be starting this blog! I’m a school librarian at two elementary schools, and for the last year or so, I’ve been writing a weekly book review for teachers there. Every week I find there are more books to review than can fit in a weekly email, so I’ve decided to start this blog with the goal of posting a new book review every day! All the books I review will be brand new, published in 2015.
I’d like to review books in all different genres and for different grade levels. In case you’re looking for something specific, and you don’t want to have to check every day, I’ll have a few days of the week when I always do the same genre. They will be:
- Middle Grade Monday – Chapter books recommended for grades 4-6
- Third Grade Thursday – Early chapter books, good for grades 2 and 3 (nothing against second grade, it’s just that Third Grade Thursday is a little more alliterative!)
- Factual Friday – Nonfiction!
- Story time Sunday – Read-aloud picture books, mostly for the primary grades
The other days of the week will be a mix of all of the above.
I usually write reviews with teachers in mind, but I’d love to spread the word to parents and anyone else who enjoys children’s books. Please feel free to pass on a link to this blog to anyone you know that may be interested!
