Welcome to the September and October 2014 issue of Through the Looking Glass Children’s Book Reviews. I have put together a wonderful collection of reviews for you for this issue, and I hope you enjoy reading the reviews as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Books give young people the means to explore all kinds of worlds. In books they can learn about the planets, take a trip to another country, and have an adventure with a dragon or some other fantastical and magical creature. This feature explores not only the world of books, but it also looks at libraries and librarians. Many people love their school and local libraries because these wonderful places give them access to all kinds of books.
Fall is a time of year when all kinds of wonderful transformations take place around us. The leaves on trees start to change color, days get cooler, and people of all ages start to think about celebrating the harvest and Halloween. It is the time of year when we get out our cool weather clothes and when we start to enjoy cold weather food like baked apples, hot drinks, and sweet pies of all kinds. The two features here are full of books for readers of all ages.
