Mother-Daughter-Son Book Reviews and Youth Literature Reviews!
What's the idea of the blog hop? Simple - to find quality literature for kids. The Hop is designed for kids under 18 and there is a great list of participants.
In an age where people are constantly worried about kids reading (will they read, do they read, read paper, ebooks, what about all that screen time?), I think the challenge is to find quality material. At least, that's my challenge as a parent of two tweens (one almost a teenager - yikes!).
Since my husband and I are both bibliophiles, you wouldn't think this is hard. But despite the (literally) hundreds of titles on our shelves, I still hear, "There's nothing to read."
Part of this is taste. My daughter likes dystopian, vampires, and books along the lines of Pretty Little Liars. My son is not a huge reader, but he likes mythology, such as Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series.
The challenge is how to find similar books - similar enough that the kids will give them a chance. Sure, there are bookstores. You can search Amazon. But how do you find recommendations, how do you know which ones are worth the money?
The list below should help in the search.
As part of the hop, I am giving away copies of Power Play, the first book in the Hero's Sword series to fifteen winners (one entry per person, please). Just leave a comment on this post and answer this question: What's your favorite childhood book memory?
Good luck and have fun checking out all of these awesome sites!
