BCCB releases 2017 Guide Book to Gift Books

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 17:49:56 +0000

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books has released the 2017 Guide Book to Gift Books. This annual publication, available as a free downloadable pdf, highlights more than three hundred of the best books for giving and receiving. 

The Guide Book is organized by age group for easier access to the right books for a particular recipient: Picture Books, Books for Young Readers (Grades 1-3; 6-8 years), Books for Middle Readers (Grades 4-6; 9-11 years), and Books for Older Readers (Grades 7-12; 12-18 years). The guide offers a broad range of styles, genres, subjects, and challenge levels. 

"In an ever-changing world, books continue to provide joy for both children and adults," said Deborah Stevenson, editor of The Bulletin. "Whether those children take joy in boisterous humor, pensive poetry, or sweeping fantasy, you'll find a book they'll love in our guide."

The Bulletin, founded in 1945, is devoted entirely to the review of current books for children and publishes eleven times each year. Each issue provides concise summaries and critical evaluations with information on the book's content, reading level, strengths and weaknesses, and quality of format as well as suggestions for curricular use.
