Childhood is full of transitions and that is what gives it beauty. But change often brings uncertainty. The questions that often flood us are, perhaps, more pronounced at the start of the new school year: Will I fit in? Do I have a place? Will I make friends? Will I be okay? And yet these universal worries are not exclusive to back-to-school.
Reading to our kids has never been more important than now. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends through policy that pediatricians consult parents on the importance of reading aloud to children during the early years. A jump-start on reading is a jump-start on language comprehension.
Is it true that teens would read more if they knew where to discover good young adult books? Surveys say it is true. The Children’s Book Review is a solution. We cover books for teens and we have plenty of excellent young adult book recommendations.
