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. Since MUNCHA! MUNCHA! MUNCHA! I've been a fan of Candace Fleming's books. CLEVER JACK TAKES THE CAKE is a clever and funny story with great illustrations.

  2. I posted a review of All Their Names Were Courage by Sharon Phillips Denslow , a middle readers novel set in Civil War times.

  3. I post almost exclusively middle grade books (grades 4-8). Sometimes I say that the books are not for my library, but express why other people might want to take a look. I usually post at least ten books a week.

  4. Another Book Talk Tuesday, yay! My post is a review of What to Expect When You're Expecting Larvae, a fun and informational read about insect parenthood.

  5. I've posted a book talk of Hoot. I'm getting ready for a big earth day book talk.


  6. Fab Book Talk Tuesday once more Kelly!

    Thanks for the Twitter reminder - much appreciated!

    Let me reveal a secret ... do you know that we started blogging at the same time?

    September 2010! Cool!

  7. Glad to see your list of participants is getting longer every week! Sorry I didn't have a post this week (unless you don't mind people posting older material). I'll try to join in again soon, though!

  8. One more entry, about two folk tale inspired picture books. Thanks for the great meme, Kelly! There's a great round-up of books today.
