Today I would like to share the resource Book Wink. It's a great site that showcases many different types of books for students from 3rd through 8th grade. The host and book reviewer, Sonja Cole has a warm and inviting voice that makes you want to run to the book shelf and pick up the book she just reviewed.
You can search the site in several ways, by subject, grade level, author or title. I would suggest showing your students this site before they head to the library or share it with your librarian and have him or her share it periodically. I also think this site could be an interesting way for your students to create book reports using a FlipVideo to record their 2 minute book review. Who knows Sonja might even use it on the site one day!
There is also an option to subscribe to their podcast as well, that way the book reviews can come to you instead of you going to them.
How would you use this site?
