Books for Youth
If you’re one of the Booklist readers who regularly turn to Books for Youth, Booklist Online offers a variety of ways to access and mine the same—and more—content. For starters, you can bookmark the Books for Youth landing page as your port of entry to Booklist Online—just look for the Books for Youth tab at the top of the BOL home page. This will give you instant access to the latest featured reviews and other content especially chosen by the Books for Youth editors. Quick Search gives you the choice to restrict your author, title, or keyword search for reviews or feature content to the Books for Youth section. If you want to look for reviews by broad subject area, you can use Browse Reviews, located under the Quick Search box, to open the customized youth taxonomy tree.
In Advanced Search, you can search for an illustrator such as Chris Raschka, or you can look for reviews by your favorite reviewer. You can combine search terms, too; if you particularly like Jennifer Mattson’s reviews of fantasy titles, select Reviewer Name from the Search On options at the top of the page, and type in Jennifer’s name; then select Youth Fiction—Youth Fantasy from the Booklist Taxonomy slider menu. If you’re looking for books published by Knopf, but you don’t want your results list cluttered with adult titles, enter Knopf as Publisher Name, then click on Books for Youth in the Audience/Format box. Need books for a particular grade level? You can use Grade Range to target your search. You can further refine a search by limiting it to starred reviews, easy readers, or picture books; or to various award winners and notables.
More Options for Children’s Books
Those of you who regularly use Booklist for selecting new materials may prefer to use the Browse Current Print Issue option, which lets you see the latest reviews in the arrangement found in the print magazine. If you’re interested in Booklist’s array of youth-oriented feature material, you can use Browse Current Print Issue to see the newest articles, interviews, etc., or you can use the Search Features tab on the Advanced Search page to access the archive. In the left-hand navigation bar, Browse Features gives you instant access to the very latest “Carte Blanche” column by Michael Cart.
