A quarterly supplement of Booklist magazine, Book Links is designed for teachers, librarians, library media specialists, booksellers, parents, and other adults interested in connecting children with books. In response to the use of children’s trade books in the classroom, the curriculum role of the school library media center, the increased programming in public libraries, and the heavy reliance of child-care centers on children’s literature, Book Links publishes bibliographies, essays linking books on a similar theme, retrospective reviews, and other features targeted at those educating young people.
