A Few Library/Reading Resources

29 Aug

I’ve been getting a lot of readers’ advisory questions this week!  This is definitely one of the best parts of my job.

Just thought I’d share a few resources I use to match kids of up with books.    You may already be using them, but I thought it would be helpful to put them all in one place.
