A Book and a Hug is a book recommendation site that I just learned about this morning at the WLMA conference. The site currently hosts reviews of more than 6,000 titles for student readers. You can search for books by keywords, age of the reader, genre, geographical setting of a book, and reading level. In addition to finding reviews your students can contribute their own book reviews to A Book and a Hug. Email addresses are not required in order for students to submit their reviews.
Applications for Education
Finding books that are appropriate for and engaging to young readers can be a challenge. A Book and a Hug could be a tremendous aid in your search and your students' searches for their next favorite book.
