Book Talk Tuesday

I have been searching the web for a great place to post book reviews for librarians and teachers to use in the classroom. Well, I am going to try hosting my own Book Talk Tuesday! I invite teachers, moms, dads and librarians to link to a recent book talk or book review that can be used by others.

My rules?
1. All content must be appropriate for children in grades kindergarten through eighth grade.
2. Websites that you link to must be child friendly since lots of kids visit this site and if they click on your link, I want it to be appropriate for them.
3. Positive reviews only, please... we only spread love here at The Lemme Library!
4. Books must be available in The US. (you are welcome to link to ARC reviews)
5. I reserve the right to remove any reviews that don't meet criteria 1-4.
In the link title field, be sure to include the title of the book you are reviewing and your site name. In the URL field, please link to this specific post that contains the book review (That way people don't have to scour your blog looking for it!)
I'd love it if you would leave a comment telling me about yourself! You are welcome to grab the Book Talk Tuesday graphic to use it on your blog.


  1. This week we're sharing our recommendation for the first two comics in the GUINEA PIG, PET SHOP PRIVATE EYE series by Colleen AF Venable. Since this recommendation was posted, the third comic has come out. We highly recommend that one, too. I imagine kids of all ages will enjoy this funny mystery series.

  2. My post is John Grandits' Technically, It's Not My Fault - a great read aloud and perennial favorite at both of the school's I've been in. It's a bit irreverent, so pre-read with your own audiences in mind, but my students from grades 4 through 8 loved the book.


  3. This week I'm sharing a review I did of a book called "Dogs Work Too." This one is for the dog lovers out there. Lots of fun!

  4. My post is about a couple of Julia Donaldson books I've recently rediscovered. A real treat!

  5. Love Book Talk Tuesday! It's a great way to meet up and read about good books.

    Thanks for hosting it every week!

  6. Thank you, Kelly! I agree with Read Aloud Dad. I appreciate you putting this together.

  7. My blog is Reading Rants and my post is about The Sweet Life of Stella Madison, perfect for 7th and 8th grade. Thanks for hosting this!

  8. Thanks for hosting again! I decided to highlight Elephants Cannot Dance! by Mo Willems this week. Looking forward to reading the other posts!

  9. This week I have a book talk on Leslie Connor's Crunch. It is a fun earth day read.

  10. Great selection this week. I posted (twice, sorry) a review of What to Expect When You're Expecting Larvae, a fun look at insect parenthood.

  11. Can't wait to look at all the posts now that mine is finally finished.

  12. My post is about Gary Paulsen's Masters of Disaster, which is a great upper elementary humor chapter book.
