Another school/public library connection
There's nothing I love so well as helping children with summer reading lists. In an ideal scenario, school and public librarians work together to create a scintillating collection of titles and avoid common pitfalls such as listing books that are out-of-print, hard to get or simply not ideal for the suggested age range. School librarian Luke Robertson has created one of the most appealing lists that I've seen in a long time. (PDF's for each grade-range are on the right hand side of the page) He also points kids to their local library while the school library is closed for the summer. It's a real pleasure helping children find things to read when I'm working with lists like these!
