December Web Watching

Zoe's been at it again.

Update: and Claire kicks off a new occasional series of booklists about world religions with one on Islam.

Ooh, I'm a big fan of Goodreads.

Great list!

May I suggest my own blog misrule.com.au/s9y as another source of information and opinion on Australian children's and YA literature?

Thanks for the booklist on Islam. This is an often-requested topic at my library, and it can be hard to find books, especially fiction, for the right age group.

I'd also like to recommend MY NAME IS BILAL by Asma Mobin-Uddin. It shows how Bilal, one of the few Muslims in his school, sees his sister bullied for covering her hair. It follows him through complex emotions and at last shows how he makes friends with the bully and yet stays true to himself. A good read. It looks like it would be for upper elementary or middle school, but I have used it successfully as a read-aloud with a small group of first graders, too.
