This will be my final post as author of the children’s literature blog as I am moving on from the University of Brighton. The vacant position should be advertised soon if anyone is interested in the role (look out for ‘Senior Learning Resources Assistant’ on the job pages).
For those of you working on your children’s literature bibliographies (CLB) over the summer, I can highly recommend the following online resources:
CLPE Corebooks – Comprehensive selection of high quality children’s books for ages 3-11
Bags of Booklists – Recommended books by age and topic
Booktrust – Themed booklists, books of the month, 100 best books
I have really enjoyed writing this blog and it has proved to be such an effective way of supporting you all with your studies and teaching practice. What a great group of students you’ve been! I wish you the best of luck with the rest of your studies and your teaching careers, and thank you for all the recommendations and the conversations I’ve had with you about children’s books. I’ve learned so much and continue to be inspired by you all.
Farewell and enjoy your well-deserved summer break,
p.s. I’ll leave you with a few recommendations of new books I’ve enjoyed recently
