Oprah and Kids' Books

Oprah has teamed up with the American Library Association to come up with some great reading lists for kids. There are actually five lists - for different ages - plus tips for parents on making reading fun for kids.

This is a nice new resource - and you know the recommendations are great because they all came from librarians!
Check out the web site here.

Thanks very much for the link. I'm always on the hunt for great children's books and have recently discovered Bayard and their series of StoryBoxBooks, AdventureBoxBooks and DiscoveryBoxBooks (which has a special focus on teeth!) They have work by acclaimed children's books illustrator Helen Oxenbury appearing in the Storybox series for September. In addition to this, they also have some great activities for rainy days: http://www.storyboxbooks.com/potatoprinting.php, http://www.adventureboxbooks.com/macaroni-picture-frames.php, http://www.discoveryboxbooks.com/skittles.php Enjoy!
