Library Information

Which books are appropriate for your child to read?

At times it is very difficult to know if a particular book is appropriate for a child to read.  I have been using two sites that are very helpful to me, as a librarian, to decide which books are appropriate for use in our school library.  You may want to visit these sites when deciding if you want your child to read a certain book.

“Common Sense Media” www.commonsensemedia.org

“Kiss the Book” www.kissthebook.blogspot.com

Both sites give tons of information!  There will be some books, of course, which are not featured on one site, but may be shown on the other site.  Hopefully these two sites, in partnership, will be helpful to you.

Does the book my child is reading have an AR test to go with it?
