The other day I came across a new blog that I am pretty excited about.
Readia is brought to us by one of my favourite writers, Sue Stauffacher of Donuthead and Harry Sue fame. The blog has been up and running since August (around the time I started out here, in fact…), and it is well worth a visit if you haven’t done so already.
Sue explains who the blog is meant to serve:
“The goal of Readia is to alert parents, teachers and others who work with children and low-level readers to high quality literature that fosters a love of reading. Readia is specifically aimed at children who are reluctant to read because they prefer other forms of media. They may also have low skill levels. The books that Sue features will be appropriate for all readers, but are targeted at readers from a variety of cultures and/or low socioeconomic backgrounds…” (for more, check out About Readia).
Here are some of the books that Sue has featured at Readia so far:
In my opinion, great writer + interesting book choices + great reviews = great blog.
So check it out.
