 Book Review and Author Sites 

Mackin Book Talk!

Look here to find books that are recommended all over the United States. Along with a summary of each book, you will find information about the author and have the chance to rate the book after you've read it.

The Stacks for Kids

This cool site has book and author information, as well as games and activities. (It is a Scholastic site, though, so there is some advertising.)

Reading Rockets

Here you'll find video interviews with some of your favorite authors, lists of books by theme and awards, and tips on choosing the right book for you.


Reading and Reading Skills Sites


This site is good for kindergarten, first and second graders. It has great tools to help younger readers become better readers.

Children's Storybooks Online

This is a fun site to find illustrated stories you can read online, and it's for all grade levels. 

Reading Rockets

Parents can go to this site and find tips for helping their child become a better reader. There are also suggestions for activities parents can do with their children to build them up as confident readers. 

A Book and a Hug

This site was created so that parents and kids could find books by genre and reading level to meet the reader's interests and abilities. 

Storyline Online

Actors read different picture books while the story is animated on video. It is just a fun way for children to develop their listening comprehension skills. This is one of my personal favorites!
