Welcome to “I’m looking for a book about….”, the topic-themed monthly carnival of children’s literature.
Every month I encourage anyone who likes to review books for children (of any age) to leave links to their reviews of books that match the given month’s theme. The idea is that over time, this carnival will become a resource for parents, teachers, carers, librarians looking for books by subject.
Old reviews, new reviews, and reviews for any age are welcome. You may also submit multiple reviews, as long as they are all relevant to this month’s theme.
This month’s theme is…
This is such an important issue for children and their grown-ups. Just this week an online buddy of mine has written very movingly about how her child has been bullied, raising the question of what we can do about it and how we can support the children involved. She recommended watching and sharing this video:
It’s a great video, but me being me, I also want to promote books as a way in to talking about the difficult issue of bullying so I’m really hoping that this month we’ll be able to bring together lots of great suggestions for children of all ages.
So if you’ve a book recommendation that deals with issues which arise from bullying please do add them via the linky below, or leave their details in the comments if you don’t have a review to link to. Please note, because I’m leading the local school’s library launch tomorrow, I won’t be able to add links in the body of this blog post this month; please leave as much detail as you wish on the inLinkz title or in the comments so that fellow readers can easily find out what book(s) you are recommending.
