'The best books, reviewed with insight and charm, but without compromise.'
- author Jackie French


Parents, teachers and librarians are special to Kids Book Review. We believe they have the toughest and most important jobs on the planet (and beyond), and we love what they do for kids.

Following you will find a fabulous line-up of KBR resources.
Sensational articles from both KBR contributors and guest posters.

Book Lists 
Book lists are an ideal way to source topic-specific or age-specific groups of books at a glance. They can be used in the classroom or at home. This list is being built over time - if you have a book list theme you'd like to see added, let us know!

KBR currently holds a database of over 2,500 reviews (and rapidly growing!), so to make your book browsing easier, we've provided a series of labels that help narrow reviews down by content and theme.

Teachers' Notes and Lesson Plans
Here you will find an A-Z listing of teachers' notes on certain book titles as well as links to a slew of publisher sites, with countless resources for teachers, librarians, educators and parents. Please email us if you have notes you would like to share on the list.
