At this time of year I troll Kids' Book Websites to see which great titles I missed during the past 11 months. Every year there are so many good books out there.
Websites and e-newsletters, like today's featured site, The Children's Book Review, are so helpful to librarians, teachers, parents, reading specialists, booksellers - oh, and young readers, too - who want to keep up with books for young people.
The above link will lead you to the latest newsletter for this website. Articles include, Holiday Favorites, Best YA, Kids and Questions: Books for Explaining How Things Work and links lead to the New York Times list of Notable Children's Books of 2012, among other useful articles.
Do yourself a favor and scroll down to this month's Book Giveaways and enter. You might get lucky!
So catch up on the best books for giving and for reading. Check out The Children's Book Review, today.
