Looking for a Great Children's Book?

When you are looking for a great children's book, go to the Urbana Free Library's website and click on "For Children", then "Books". We have a plethora of bibliographies to help you find the books you are looking for. We have the "Caldecott Medal" list which is the award for the best illustrated children's book of the year. And for older children, we have the "Newbery Medal" list of the best written children's books. Also, we have the current year's list of Bluestem, Monarch, and Rebecca Caudill nominees (which many local schools require their students to read). We also have a host of bibliographies on many different topics. For younger children, we have "Toddler Books", "Picture Books - Librarians' Favorites", "Potty Time", and "New Baby in the Family" lists. For older children, we have "First Chapter Books", "Fantastic Fantasies", "Superheroes", and "Getting Ready for Middle School". Plus, we have several lists of books recommended by children just like you, and you can submit a review of book you would recommend, too. There are many more bibliographies on a wide variety of topics on our website under "For Children", then "Books". So, check it out!              Janet R.
