What's New on This Web Site
There is now a search engine available on Carol Hurst's Children's Literature Site. If you follow the Search link you will find a test version of the search engine. It uses the Alta Vista search engine to find all the pages on our site which contain the words you type in. Unfortunately, because the Alta Vista engine doesn't post updates to sites very often these days, you will only be led to pages that existed as of June 14th. However each time Alta Vista does update their database it will include new pages.
Reviews and Articles
Check the What's New page of our site for book reviews and children's literature articles added since the last newsletter.
We also have three sponsors to welcome aboard. Our sponsorship program makes it possible to maintain and expand our children's literature content while bringing you news of other good companies and individuals in the field of children's literature. May we have a rousing chorus of applause for: Teaching K-8 Magazine, Didax Educational Resources, and Jacque Wuertenberg (Educational Consultant). If you love this site, and our sponsors' support has caused you to take a look at their materials and consider them for future purchases, please let them know. :-).
Also, coming in approximately 8 weeks are 148 new reviews of Carol's favorite novels, picture books and nonfiction books.
Links to Bookstore
Coming gradually, beginning this week, will be the ability to order books over the internet directly through this site. This service is provided through the Amazon.com bookstore. Amazon.com returns to us a small percentage of the proceeds all of which will be used to expand this site.
Coming this fall will be extensive excerpts of all of Carol Hurst's books on using children's literature in the classroom.
