I thoroughly enjoyed this assignment, at times it was a lot of work, but I know it will pay off in the long run. I'm eager to use Library Thing once I become a teacher so that I can build rich lesson plans that incorporate books. All in all I read 103 book. 18 were easy, 33 were picture books, 17 had been awarded the Caldecott medal, 14 were multicultural, 7 were contemporary realistic fiction, 10 were biographies,6 were historical fiction, 6 were historical non-fiction, 3 were fantasy, and 7 were folklore. I found it relatively easy to find books according to genre, class, gender, culture, age, and ability level. At first, when searching for books in UNO's database I used very vague keywords, but as the semester went on I realized that using very specific keywords generated more results.For example when searching for a book about children with disabilities, instead of just typing in disabilities, I would type in a specific disability, like cerebral palsy.

All this reading was a lot of work but I know have a personal collection of books that I can call upon at any time. I have also browsed Library Thing's site and realize what an amazing tool it is. When deciding on what books to read during the teamster I had a few techniques. Sometimes I would search something very specific in the database, other times I would browse library thing and see what books it would recommend to me based on the books I had already entered. Other times I would simply browse the books on the shelves to see if an author or title would stand out to me.

I babysit every weekend, so I was able to take my homework with me and read to children throughout the semester. I found reading books to children is a lot better than just reading it to yourself because you get to interact with another reader as well as act out the books.
