ALSC has teamed up with “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to provide a Kids Reading List on the show’s Web site (http://www.oprah.com/article/oprahsbookclub/kidsreadinglist/pkgkidsreadinglist/20080701_orig_kids_books).
The list is divided into five age groups, from infant to two through 12 and up. Each group contains an annotated bibliography of librarian-recommended reading. There is also a separate “Classics” section, grouped by age ranges, giving parents the opportunity to share the books they once loved with their own children. The Web site also provides a list of ways to make reading fun for kids, and other helpful tips for parents.
The Kids Reading List was compiled by the ALSC Quicklists Consulting Committee, which works to promote books and other resources through recommendations, compilations of lists, and related services.
