The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books is one of the nation's leading children's book review journals for school and public librarians, teachers, and others interested in children's literature. Each year, it reviews nearly one thousand new books for young people from birth to young adulthood, with each review offering an in-depth look at the book's content, reading level, strengths and weaknesses, and possible uses. The journal is published eleven times per year (monthly except for August) for the School by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
The Guide Book to Gift Books is an annual publication compiled by Deborah Stevenson, editor of The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, and Kate Quealy-Gainer, assistant editor. It includes brief annotations for over three hundred of the best books for giving (and receiving), with over one hundred new additions since last year's guide. Entries are divided by age group and include author, title, publisher, and the current list price.
