Through the advancements of technology, I found out about this great resource via Twitter user Moomettesgram aka Cindy at Moomettesgram's Musings. She did such a great write up about it, that I had to click right on over to Read Kiddo Read.
It's a great resource from author James Patterson with detailed descriptions of books broken up into age ranges:
Great Illustrated Books, 0-8 years
Great Transitional Books, Ages 6 & Up
Great Page Turners, Ages 8 & Up
Great Advanced Reads, Ages 10 & Up
In the Great Illustrated Books section the books are further broken down into Books for Babies, Storybooks, Easy Kid Reads, and Just the Facts for non fiction books. I really liked how a detailed description of each featured book is provided along with themes covered in it and the extensive lists of suggested books that cover similar topics given for each featured book.
While you're there don't miss clicking on the Community tab at the top. Where you'll get access to more great resources like the Almost Can't-Miss Sure Shot Books for Boys and an Almost Can't-Miss Sure Shot for Girls lists.
It's also where I learned about BookRix. You can find free ebooks there, including many children's books. If you've always dreamed of being an author you can also make, upload, and share your own books. I was able to browse the collections by clicking on the Books tab at the top and then doing a search for Children's books.
I also found out about 30 Poets 30 Days at Gotta Book through the community postings. What fun, I can't wait to check out the 30 previously unpublished children's poems by well known authors such as Jack Prelutsky.
I was thinking this would be a good way for parents to put together summer reading lists. I hope you enjoy perusing it!
