Book Talk Tuesday

Last week I didn't do a very good job of getting to all of your blogs.  I like to make a comment on each post, but last week it got away from me.  Please know how much I appreciate your participation!  I will try harder this week! 
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 Oliver the Telepathic Puppy recommends WHERE’S WALRUS? a funny, wordless picture book. The story is clever and the illustrations are appealing.

  2. Kelly,

    You do a great job with this! Don't feel like you have to get to my blog. :-) Just know how much I enjoy your blog and Book Talk Tuesday!

  3. Hi! I just read Bobby Vs. Girls (Accidentally) and think it would make a really fun read aloud, especially for fourth graders, since Bobby is a fourth grader.


  4. Oops! Not sure I did the linky thing right. But thanks for sharing this. Great idea!

  5. This week something different at my blog: audio book book talks.

  6. That's for hosting Book Talk Tuesday. I look forward to reading all the posts. This week The Cath in the Hat review Octopus Soup, a wordless picture book.

  7. Hi, Kelly. 10 Children's Books About the Arctic is one in a series of Read Around the World booklists that I have been working hard on. I hope that these Read Around the World booklists will be a valuable resource for librarians to use this summer for their summer reading programs. Best, Amy

  8. Glad to see you are keeping this going. Can't wait to see what everyone has posted.

  9. I'm excited to participate this week and look forward to browsing all the posts.

  10. Thanks for hosting! Didn't get to participate last week what with all the relatives visiting, but I'm back this week.
