Resources to Discover Good Books for Kids

Before going to a library to borrow some books for my 10 year old son and 4 year old daughter, I usually search around and determine a list of books I would like to borrow.

There following is a list of tools that I found very useful.

1 Librarything

2. shelfari

3. Goodreads

4. Amazon

With above tools, I can easily find books that fit the age and have better reviews and then check whether I can get it from my local library.

There are some other good resources to help parents to find appropriate books for kids as well, such as

1.  http://www.teachingbooks.net/

2. http://49thshelf.com/

3. http://www.teenreads.com/

4. http://aboutread.com/

So far, the best series of books both my kids enjoyed are the the Berenstain Bears. You can find more information from their official web siste http://www.berenstainbears.com/. Most libraries have them, I am pretty sure.
