Sit down and stay a while …

Welcome to The Children’s Book Review, where it’s our mission to create enthusiastic, life-long readers! But how does one do that? Is it by choosing the book that fits the child’s cognitive and affective needs? Is it by choosing the book that makes us feel new emotions or empowers the ones we already have? Let’s decide together. The plan is to start by reviewing books that will hopefully enrich the lives of your children, and yourself, and provoke the desire to read more. “I think the best thing we can do is provide the environment and the means for kids to explore literature and then let them figure out where they want to go from there”, says a reader of blogger Julia Eccleshare.  Of course we will come across some bad writing (besides mine), and that’s okay, you need to have some bad to really appreciate the good. When it happens, well…  let’s just hope it’s not too often.

Thank you so much for visiting the site. I hope to see you again very soon. Enjoy the first review!

The Children’s Book Review, named one of the ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children) Great Web Sites for Kids, is a resource devoted to children’s literacy. We publish reviews and book lists of the best books for kids of all ages. We also produce author and illustrator interviews and share literacy based articles that help parents, grandparents, teachers and librarians to grow readers. This article was written and provided by one of TCBR's regular contributors.
