Reading Links

Reading classes visit the Flood Library on a regular basis to participate in various activities and select independent
reading books. All reading assignments require skills that will be assessed on the CMT's in March.
In the meantime if you're looking for something to read, try these sites:

  • Nancy Keane's Booktalks Quick and Simple: Look up books by title, author, subject, interest and more. Over 5,000 books listed for children in Grades K-12 from a middle school library media specialist who has written several books herself.

  • What's Next? Books in Series: This site helps you search series fiction.  A series is two or more books linked by character(s), settings, or other common traits. Searches can be made by title, author, or series by filling in any or all of the fields onthe page.

  • Nutmeg Book Award: Now you have a choice of books for either grades 4-6 or 7-8. From the Nutmeg Home Page, choose the links for the new nominees or look back at some of the past Nominees and winners.

  • Banned Books Week, Celebrating the Freedom to Read: September 24–October 1, 2011. Have you read a Banned Book? Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read is observed during the last week of September each year. Observed since 1982, this annual American Library Association event reminds Americans not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted. This year's theme is "Free Your Mind; Read A Banned Book". BBW celebrates the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one’s opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints to all who wish to read them. For more information, visit the ALA's Banned Books Week Site.

Is there something in particular you like? A book, an author, a genre (science fiction, fantasy, mystery, horror)? We are always looking for suggestions for new titles to add to our collection here, so please let us know what your favorites are.
