Childrens Book Reviews

Childrens Book Reviews are key to having a library of materials in your hands to help build student achievement, promote reading and further develop comprehension skills.

I have read thousands of books through my years and have found that many are "fluff" - but a few gems that I would never want to teach without!

This list is to help you find high content, great books to spend your time reading with your students.

I have included fiction and non-fiction titles. Most teachers try to have a balance of both in read alouds, shared reading, guided reading, and in their classroom library.

So, before you spend money on a book look it over for yourself and make sure it meets your students' needs.

At the top of this page are my reviews, and below there are tons of books submitted by other visitors to this page.

I hope they help!
