Features

In addition to book reviews, this blog also includes the following features:

  •  Each week, on Old School Sunday, I review children's and YA books published in the 1990's or before. Old School Sunday posts are here.
     
  • Short Story Spotlight is where I review short stories from children's collections, magazines, websites, and other sources. Read my Short Story Spotlight posts here.
     
  • Easy Reader Radar posts focus on randomly selected easy readers from my library's collection and other sources. Click here to read my Easy Reader Radar posts.

  • Getting to Know... posts focus on a specific series, author, or character, providing background information and an overview of what readers might not know about it.  Getting to Know... posts can be read here.
  • Themed Thursday posts provide a short bibliography of children's and/or YA books on a topic of my choice. Themed Thursday posts can be read here, or by selecting a theme from the menu in the sidebar. Themed Thursday was retired on August 9, 2012.

  • Each month, I post about a handful of Author Birthdays. I share five facts about the author, a quotation from his or her work, and my own thoughts on the author's work. Click here to view Author Birthdays posts, or browse by author's name on the home page.
