Book Buzz Picks and Reviews – A monthly Children’s Literature Book Review Column with publishing opportunities for  students on Wednesdays.

The first Book Buzz column of the month – Picks – introduces three book titles to student readers.  The picks are organized by reading level, one each for young, middle, and older readers.

The second column of the month – Reviews – publishes student reviews of the titles. Students have 5 weeks to complete reviews. If a review is sent in after deadline, we may publish it at a later date – so send it anyway!
