Hello!  I subscribe to The Big Fresh Newsletter from Choice Literacy<http://www.choiceliteracy.com/public/1358.cfm>.  The latest issue included an interesting, and potentially valuable website:

Reading in Action:  Bookcasts

Bookcasts are organized by children, tween, teens, young reader medal winners, and award winners.  They include an audio and/or video bookcast that you can listen to/view online or download to iPods via iTunes, a book description, and suggested age-ranges.  There is a pretty decent list of titles available.  I listened to and viewed several this morning, some were great and others were pretty dry.  This could be a great tool for kids to use to learn about and select books, and a great tool for you to learn more about children's, tween, and teen literature. The website also includes other resources such as reading and writing activities and links online educational games (the handful I looked at were all free).
