How I Use It
This is a wonderful resource for teachers or librarians to use to select interesting books for students to read. It is a free resource that breaks down topics and then provides information on books and then provides lots of resources that are related to those books and interests. Not great for the average students, but wonderful for teachers.
My Take
If you are a teacher or parent looking for a wealth of recommendations for reading books and student-friendly resources, this is the tool to use! I really like the way that the resources are grouped and I think that the resources are great. The reason that I could not give the highest possible rating is that it is not the type of resource that can be used as an independent tool in the classroom. It is not student user friendly but as a teacher resource, this is not one to miss.
