With over 30,000 titles published for children in 2014, it can be challenging to see the forest through the trees. Identifying new titles for use in programs, displays, teacher collections, and class visits can be challenging and time consuming.

In this interactive webinar program, Jill Burket Ragase and Amy Schardein will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:

  • Be up to date on recently released board books, picture books, chapter books, and nonfiction books for children
  • Pair new items to create storytimes and other programs

This overview of must-have board, picture, chapter, and nonfiction books covers under the radar choices for programs and class visits, coverage of un-reviewed items, and suggestions for almost every facet of your collection. Program ideas and pairings and an extensive bibliography are also included.
