The author of 100 Best Books for Children and 500 Great Books for Teens, Anita Silvey has devoted 35 years to promoting books that inspire children to become enthusiastic, lifelong readers. At PBS LearningMedia you can hear more from her about hooking young readers with narrative nonfiction as well as from Marilyn Singer, who has written all kinds of great books for children and young adults. In addition to their accompanying book lists, the New York Times’ “Notable Children’s Books for 2014”
also provides a book list for children and young adults.
While there are many ways to search for tens of thousands of resources at PBS LearningMedia, I found the videos and support materials on Silvey and Singer when searching “Great Books”.
