As librarians, we have all had or will have parents who walk into the library searching for books for different levels of readers. There are many resources available in addition to our knowledge as librarians that will help us find the most appropriate books. One invaluable web resource that will enable librarians to complete this task in both an efficient and effective manner is called ABookandAHug. This website is well organized and categorized making searching for a book for different levels of readers simple.
The categories of ABookandAHug include all reading groups of children ranging from reluctant to advanced readers, genres ranging from Chick Lit to Paranormal, and even a category specifically for boys and girls. There is a plethora of categories on this site and creator, Barb Langridge who is also an independent children's bookseller and a children's specialist at a public library, created them all to simply get children excited about reading.
This website is available to the public and is an excellent resource to recommend to parents, educators, and even children. What an honor to have access to such an informative website free of charge. It’s only one click away. Check it out!
