We're thrilled to announce a cool new tool called Book Finder on FamilyEducation.com! You can use it to search for newly released children's books by age, type (picture book, chapter book, poetry collection, etc.), and theme (bedtime story, friendship, nature, and more).
Book Finder launched the same week that the American Academy of Pediatrics announced it will recommend reading aloud to babies and young children (see the AAP's new policy statement on literacy promotion here). Studies have shown that literacy is important to kids' overall development, success in school, and even their long-term health, so it's never to early to crack a book with your baby.
Our Book Finder is full of brand-new book recommendations for newborns on up to tweens! Give it a try; go ahead and search for a bedtime story for your preschooler, or a chapter book on bullying or another tough topic for your middle-schooler. There's something for everyone, and we'll be adding new books all the time!
Encourage kids to read all summer long with this printable summer reading log and these everyday activities that make summer reading a breeze!
