Resource Information

Not sure what to read to your kids? Well, here are two resources that may make selecting and how to engage your youngster easier.

Great Books for Babies and Toddlers by Kathleen Odean (Dewey number j028.5 ODE)


Playful Reading by Carolyn Munson-Benson (Dewey number j372.4 MUN)

Both of these books were recently featured by my local library in their monthly newsletter for the Developing Young Readers information and Reading Beyond the Bestseller List article.

Also, if you are looking for a website to check out there is the Children's Literature Network which is dedicated to "adults who are passionate about encouraging kids to read". This site includes a list of resources for Delving Deeper into books about reading as well as provides a variety of other helpful information.

I have found that useful books in working with kids (K-6) during my former library and volunteering days could be found in the juvenile section of my local library. Check your library out and see how they shelve their reading resource collection. You might be surprised what you find and where it is kept.

And, in other updates: It is sunny with no rain today. Yeah!!! Spring is almost here.
