The Book Gryffin

Bio: My name is Tye and I am the Library Coordinator at Manor Lakes P-12 Specialist College.

Here I will be reviewing children’s and young adult titles for those of you interested in finding suitable texts to aid in curriculum delivery, engaging reluctant readers or finding the next title to pass on to avid reader. It is my hope that this site will be a useful and trustworthy tool to reference in regards to what is available for our students to read.

In a previous life, not so long ago, I was a Young Adult and Children’s Specialist Bookseller, (which translates to getting paid to read kids books!) Long have I loved children’s books and it has always been a passion of mine to be able to recommend a book to a child, having read and loved it myself.

Teachers are busy people, often, with not enough time to keep on top of the latest children’s release. I hope that my site assists you in keeping abreast with the vast array of children’s and young adult literature available today. Wherever possible I will include tags to indicate topics and themes covered by a text and whether or not there are teaching notes available for the books recommended. You will be able to read comments and reviews from students themselves and teachers who have found a particular book useful.

Comments and queries are most welcome!
