An APP to find kid's books
Available Now in the iTunes App Store
(A version for Android users is forthcoming)
Love children's books? Anxious to see your children or students develop a love for books and reading? Then this app is tailor made for you.
Need a good mystery for your ten-year-old? Are you teaching a unit on dinosaurs and need an exciting selection of dinosaur titles for your class? Or is your granddaughter fascinated by fire engines, and so you are after a great picture book about them for her birthday?
Kid's Book Finder quickly places nearly 28,000 fully annotated children's book titles at your fingertips, with new titles being added regularly. Searching can be as easy or detailed as you wish. In moments, you can produce an annotated list of alphabet books for pre-school children. Or a selection of books about space flight for students ages 1012. Or a list of vampire novels for young adults. Or poetry books that have won a John Newbery or Newbery Honor Book Award.
Well-known professors of children's literature, Drs. Michael O. Tunnell and James S. Jacobs, have spent years compiling this diverse list of children's book titles. They have taught university-level children's literature courses for a combined total of more than 60 years. Over those years, they also have written numerous professional articles and books about literature for young readers, including their popular textbook Children's Literature, Briefly.
