101 Books to Read Before You Grow Up by Bianca Schulze: Review and Giveaway!

Tuesday, October 18, 2016
101 Books to Read Before You Grow Up provides a comprehensive list of kid-friendly books for children to read before they grow up. This must-read review list acts as an interactive journal where kids can document the books they read, why they like them, and how they rate them. Divided into sections by subject, from fairy tales and fantasy to sports and nonfiction, 101 Books to Read Before You Grow Up helps both kids and parents decide which books to read next! 

Goodreads Summary

I wish books like this existed when I grew up (if they did, I never found them in the library!). I loved reading through the list of books recommended and reflecting on which books I read and which were favorites and which I struggled through. This book reminded me of favorite authors and also of books that I had promised myself I would read later and merely forgot (I definitely have a few library holds to make). There are so many different genres and even nonfiction titles. I loved how colorful the book was; the colors were so vivid and eye-catching. I could easily see a child or adult enjoying reading through the recommendations. The journal aspect was adorable. The children can "rate" the books and write down what they did or didn't enjoy.
