Buying Gifts: Children's Books

Great website to use to find good reading for all kids

My husband and I often buy books as gifts for our friends' kids. But since we are old by kid (and other) standards, it is hard to remember what books fit which reading levels.

Here are some great resources to help find the right book for your favorite child:

A Mighty Girl
Scholastic Book Clubs
Newbery Medal Award Winners
Candecott Medal Award Winners

Re-reading your favorite piece of children's literature as an adult and noticing the racist, imperialist and homophobic messages? Stephen Marche's article, How to Read a Racist Book to your Kids, addresses this difficult issue.

What are your favorite places to search for children's literature?
