Volume 7, Issue 1


 How exciting – we are launching the premiere issue of a newly revamped SPARKS: Children’s Book Review Journal.


The revamped the journal has a new look; but, we have decided to retain approximately 250 of the books from the previous 6 volumes.  Of course, we have our new reviews which we hope you will find informative and helpful. 

    The selections for this issue are varied in hopes that everyone will find a book that will “spark” their reading interests.  Selections from all genres are included and you are sure to find a book with which you will “fall “in love.    


    Have a wonderful time perusing this issue.  Hopefully you will find some new “favorite” literature selections and reminisce over those old “favorites”.  Whichever is the case, happy reading!
