- Children’s Book Review
- The Review is an opportunity for public and school librarians to preview new picture books, early readers, and juvenile and young adult fiction and nonfiction. They also can read reviews from professional journals of most of these new titles. Reviews are scheduled throughout the year at different venues; dates and locations will be announced via listservs and newsletters. For the current list of books in the Review, see the Librarians’ Resource List in NHU-PAC.
