The following links will connect you to websites that'll help you select a great book.   Your goal should be to find a book that is just right for you.  Choose a book that you'll really want to read. 
 
Stop by the library if you'd like help making a selection!   
 
Happy Reading!!!   Mrs. Neglia    :-)

Check out the lists under the category "Quick Reference". There are some great books here. Just remember to select titles from the Middle Reader or Older Reader lists.

 

Multicultural Book Reviews

Multicultural Book Review Homepage

This site lists books about people from different ethnic backgrounds including African, Asian, Latino, American Indian, and Middle Eastern. Try one of these books if you'd like to know what it would be like growing up in a different culture.

 

The Reading Corner

The Reading Corner
There are great links here to lists of books under general subject categories. I like this site because it gives suggestions for fiction, nonfiction, biographies, poetry and more! You can also locate information about authors on this site.

 

Westchester Library System

http://www.westchesterlibraries.org/node/614

This link will bring you to the youth services page of the Westchester Library System.  It has lots of books listed by grade and genre.  It’s great, check it out!

 

White Plains Public Library

Welcome to the White Plains Public Library
This is the home page for our local public library. One of the useful things you can do at this site is to check if the public library owns a copy of the book you want to read. If it does, you can place a hold on the book, online! (Let me know if you need help checking the catalog or placing a hold on a book).

 

World of Reading

World of Reading
Definitely check this site out. It's filled with reviews written by students. Find out what people your age are saying about the books they've read. You can even submit your own reviews to be added to this site! (Let me know if you submit any and I'll post it in the library!!!!).
