Recommended Reading

There is a great deal of information about books on the Internet.  Apart from the sites selling books, there are sites for authors and publishers, sites with book reviews written by children, and sites where parents can find helpful information.  The following list, suggested by The Federation of Children's Book Groups, is a good place to start; several of the sites will have links to others.
