With conferences just about over, I wanted to share a resource that has come up a few times. Many of you have avid readers who are eager to read more challenging material. This is great, but it can sometimes be hard to keep up with them and pre-read everything to make sure it is appropriate.
I strongly recommend checking out new titles that you're unfamiliar with on Common Sense Media. They do a great job of looking into all sorts of media aimed at kiddos, and giving a concise, clear review of what sorts of things you should expect to find. They evaluate media for things like positive role models, violent content, and language, while also giving a quick recommended age reference.
I hope this helps some of you navigate the exciting world of books with your kids!
