The Children’s Book Review Trends: What’s Hot in October, 2009?

By Bianca Schulze, The Children’s Book Review

Here is the scoop on the most popular destinations on The Children’s Book Review site. From freebies to new releases, see what October has to offer.

The Trends

It comes as no surprise that our posting of the “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” trailer is receiving a lot of visitors. The popular book-come-movie was ranked number one at the box office for its first two weekends and grossed $30,304,648 in the first weekend, alone. Perhaps it’s because everyone has been spending their pocket-money at the cinema, or perhaps it’s just that everyone loves a good bargain, no matter what the reason, people are still flocking to discover “Where to Find Free e-Books for Children On-Line“.

We all love Dr. Seuss and what he has to offer for beginner readers. “If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good,” wrote Dr. Seuss. And if you never did … we’ve shared “5 reasons to Love Dr. Seuss“. Now, what about older readers? What is it that holds their attention? “Scat” by Carl Hiaasen, that’s what!

If you’ve read this far, you like knowing what’s hot. Which explains why “The Children’s Book Review Trends: What’s Hot in September, 2009?”  is currently one of our most popular pages to visit.
