You must check out this AMAZING resource. Story Snoops is a website created by a group of mothers who read, review, and categorize books for tweens and teens. This site will be so helpful when trying to get the right book in the right hands. There are several different ways to search for books, ranging from a specific author or title search to browsing based on genres, categories, or content. Finding a book by looking at their “suggested reading” lists is my favorite. These incredible search tools are enough to make me passionately love this site. Information provided for each book includes the book details, a brief summary, “the scoop” (which describes the book’s content from an adult’s prospective), and content keywords.
If all those resources aren’t enough to knock your socks off, then check out the section that has their blog. I’m so in love!
I hope this site is around for years and years to come, because this is not only a great tool for me as a librarian but it’s also something that I plan to recommend for use by parents and teachers. I would so totally hug these moms if I could! So go check it out and love it as much as I do.
