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.

  • I advise parents not to have your child read “The Boy In The Striped Pajamas”, because is badly written and historically inaccurate. A good alternative is “Milkweed” by Jerry Spinelli it is well written, historical accurate and age appropriate for children of 7th grade reading comprehension level, if below it’s a great book to read aloud.
