Sylvan Learning Center, News Channel 8, and My TV 9 know that great reading skills can make a real difference.
That’s why we’ve partnered with Read to Grow for ‘Great Reads for all ages’!
Read to Grow works to improve early literacy and give all children a good start in life.
If you're looking for a list of suggested books that will inspire children of all ages, here's how to get started:
Of course, for anyone looking for a great read, the best place to start is
at their own local library. Librarians can put the perfect book in their
patron's hands. And it's free!
Libraries have their catalogs online, so anyone can review titles available,
and even place "holds" or requests on that title, without ever having to
leave their home. They'll be notified when the book ready for pick-up.
A list of Connecticut Public Libraries can be found here:
Also, every year, CLC compiles booklets of our Children's Librarians
Favorite Book Picks, with reviews.

And, RJ Julia Book sellers in Madison has a website for "Kid's Favorites":
