Dear colleagues,

Just to let you know about a new page from Services to Schools, National Library, on motivating and engaging your pre-teen readers. Content includes the characteristics of children during these years, causes of the upper primary reading slump, the importance of reading for tweens, how to engage them and how school libraries can help, based on both NZ and overseas research and experience.

We will also have another page, to be loaded in the next week or so, on what types of books tweens like to read and how to develop a collection which encourages great reading habits.

    As promised the second page from Services to schools to help with motivating your tween readers. This one focusses on developing a school library collection for your tween readers, where to sources titles, links to the titles that students this age like to read including cross unders (teen titles for tween readers) and reading through life's transitions.
