An Infopeople Webinar

Start:
February 2nd, 2012 12:00 PM
End:
1:00 PM

Presenter: Penny Peck 

  • Frustrated that you cannot think of a recommendation when a child asks for a “good book to read?”
  • Tired of recommending the same books because you can’t think of anything new to recommend to a child visiting the library?

Discover the new books that you can recommend to children who use your library! Hear about books published in 2011, and upcoming Spring 2012 titles, that will be popular with children ages 0-12. These include picture books, easy readers, transitional fiction, genre fiction for middle grades, graphic novels, poetry, nonfiction, and more! Hear about books that will appeal to the “reluctant reader,” boys who may have drifted away from reading, and books that will have popularity with a wide audience of children.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Be able to identify “read-alikes” – other books you can recommend to children after you find out their favorite book
  • Discover books that will grab the attention of reluctant readers, including the newest graphic novels for kids, nonfiction including “gross” topics, and popular culture titles
  • Hear a recap of the recent ALA awards (such as Newbery, Caldecott, etc.) and other recent children’s book awards, to make sure you have these available to recommend
  • Take away a list of helpful websites to use when doing readers’ advisory, and sites that will help you keep up-to-date on the latest children’s books

This webinar will be of interest to any library staff or volunteer who serves children ages 0-12, in either public or school libraries.

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
