Children’s Readathon – Young Adult (YA) Books (Week 3)

Posted on Updated on

Our third week focuses on children’s young adult (ya) books. A few dozen people are participating this month by reading and sharing reviews on many childhood favorites that were selected in a previous poll. Read from 8/18 to 8/23 and post your review on or before 8/24. Below are all the links I collected; they’ll take you to the original blogger’s review. Please email or message me if you’re participating or posting a review so I can add you to the list below of blogs to watch. You can add in anything into your post besides a review, e.g. giveaways, author profiles, background material, educational ideas, etc. Have fun with it!

Participating Books / Blogs

  • The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
    • This Is My Truth Now*
  • Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
    • This Is My Truth Now*

    This is a really nice venture! We really need to bring kids away from smartphones and tablets and more into books!

    I have read both these books before, but will dig them out and read them again. Both good choices.

        I tried to get them from the library instead of pulling out my bins of books, but they were both checked out. That of course, is a good thing.
