Matching a child with a book—one she will enjoy and be motivated to read—is a challenge. Matching a class full of children with such books is an even greater undertaking, but this is just the challenge facing teachers and media specialists every day.
What if there were a reliable tool? One that put thousands of quality titles at your fingertips? One that could sort these titles for you, depending on your need? One that made matching children and books simple?
The Children's Literature Database contains more than 15,000 titles for young readers selected from many awards lists, "best book" compilations, recommended lists, lists of "classics," and our own reading experiences. More than 80 awards are included in the database: national awards presented by various library and educational organizations, awards decided by children, as well as many international awards. Menus and buttons allow you to proceed with just a few mouse clicks or keystrokes.
This CD will be an invaluable tool for you. Any time you need a reading list catered to one child, a group of related books for a classroom of students at different developmental levels, or a set of titles appropriate to connect to a unit you're teaching, you will find what you need on this CD.
