About this Site
“Being able to read is like unfolding your life from an envelope.
You can make your own world by the books you read. You can choose
your world by the types of books that you read.” Robert Munsch
for Words is dedicated to providing our young avid readers with a
place to get some advice on best-reads! And it is also a place where
you can share information about what books you recommend or read the
reviews sent in by other readers.
The Featured Books on this web site offer stimulating worlds of challenging ideas, intriguing characters, places explored, times visited. All the titles featured have been selected by teacher-librarians from the Calgary Board of Education, and have met the criteria of the Evaluation and Selection Guidelines of the Calgary Board of Education.
