Welcome to my blog about wonderful children’s and youth literature! I am a graduate student in the Library and Information Sciences MS program at the University of North Texas. I created this blog for my SLIS 5420 class. Our assignment was to blog about two books for each module, but I occasionally have included an extra book when I had more than two favorites. I tried to mix up the age levels and formats a bit so that there would be a wide variety of recommendations. This list represents a portion of the reading I did this summer for the class. My interest in youth literature has been sparked, and I will continue to read and enjoy good books for children. I hope that you will find some books here that you haven’t read and that you will be inspired to check them out!
