Quality Resource: CCBlogC

This is not the first time I’ve referenced the CCBC (Cooperative Children’s Book Center), nor will it be the last; however, this is the first time I’m highlighting CCBlogC.

Check it out if you’re looking to stay informed about great books that have recently been published. The latest book-of-the-week highlights The Lost Kitten, a picture book; meanwhile, a recent favorite of mine they highlighted the first week of August was The First Rule of Punk, a book for the middle grades (ages 9-12).

They’ve even included pages to reflect your specific needs as a K-12 teacher, librarian, childcare provider, preschool teacher, or University of Wisconsin student, faculty, instructor, teaching assistant (the university is reflected as this is where they are housed). You can help support the CCBC by joining the Friends of […]
