LIBR-1047Readers' Advisory for Children

Readers’ Advisory for Children provides an introduction to books for children from preschool to tweens, including picture books, easy readers, transitional fiction, genre novels, graphic novels, and popular nonfiction; and how to recommend these books to youth. We will discover methods to determine what a young person might like to read, and how to recommend and market books to children. Several different genres of literature written for young people will be examined. You will prepare and present different techniques for bringing children and books together: reading aloud/storytelling, writing annotations, using readers’ advisory websites and book talking. Current issues affecting children’s literature will also be discussed.
