Featured Article: Happy Anniversary Read & Shine


I recently had a college student, who is studying to be a teacher, ask me what is the one book I think every child should read. I replied there isn’t one, however, every child should be represented in a book in her classroom. Now more than ever this is so true. As Read & Shine begins year number 2, we are looking for ways to bring you more books than ever- through CLCD, our new app MoBoo, and of course our bi-monthly newsletter- and you can always trust us to provide information that is free of marketing influence by publishers and booksellers. Our mission is to help you find the right books for your child and the children for whom you provide reader’s advisory. Every child matters to us.

As part of our one-year anniversary issue of the Read & Shine newsletter, we have chosen to honor great books, great authors and our great subscribers. First, take a tour through our list of 25 great biographies to use for Black History Month. Then, take a look at this year’s winners of the Walter Dean Myers award which honor the late author. Join us as we honor the recent passing of legendary author Ursula K. Le Guin. Lastly, roll up your sleeves and compete with our other subscribers to win Amazon gift cards. 

Here’s to another year of extraordinary books!
