The Nine-Year-Old’s year in books
I’ve been using Goodreads on a personal basis for years now. All those years, I’ve been tracking the books we review on Caterpickles on my children’s books shelf. But with 300 books and counting there, it occurred to me that perhaps my children’s books shelf was not turning out to be the useful resource for Caterpickles readers that I had intended.
Which is why I’m in the process of creating a Goodreads account dedicated to the books reviewed here on Caterpickles. Eventually, all of the book reviews here will also be over there. More importantly, those books will be shelved according to the age my daughter was when she first read them.
So the next time you’re in the market for a book to share with a child, you’ll be able to pop over to the Caterpickles Goodreads account and see what my daughter was reading at that age and what she thought about it.
It’s still a work in progress, but I’ve got all of her nine-year-old books up there, some of her eight-year-old ones, and hope to finish posting the rest from ages 4-7 by the end of next week.
Check it out, and if you’re on Goodreads, befriend us.
