Welcome to my virtual library

I work as a school librarian. I've just finished three years in a private girls school, working in the junior library and loving every minute of it, but it's time for a change so in the new year I'm moving to an intermediate school much closer to home. I will miss my lovely girls terribly, particularly those voracious readers I've come to know so well, but I'm looking forward to the challenges that my new job will bring - an older age group, boys as well as girls, a lot more students in a lower decile school.
But the same things will apply, I'm there to match up kids with the books that grow their love of reading, for pleasure and for information.

One of the phrases I love to hear is "Can you recommend some good books Ms Blair?"
The answer is always yes.
So this is the beginning of an alternate way for me to share my reading recommendations. I'll mostly be writing about children's books but no doubt others will occasionally appear.

I will write about new books and old favourites, some just because I love them, some because they answer a need. I welcome questions - if you don't know what to read next send me a message with some of your favourite books, and I'll see what else I can suggest for you.
