Papier ou numérique ? Pour les enfants, la lecture prime sur les formats

Papier ou numérique ? Pour les enfants, la lecture prime sur les formats | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Les spécialistes de la lecture sont formels - et on les en remercie - l'apparition des tablettes, des lecteurs ebook et autres, ne signifie pas pour autant que la tradition de s'asseoir avec son enfant sur les genoux pour lui lire une histoire doit disparaître. Et moins encore d'arrêter de les faire lire à voix haute.

Programming Idea: Retro Gaming

Programming Idea: Retro Gaming | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Instantly I could see it. The library purchases some old Nintendo NES consoles (gigantic game cartridges and all), some Atari, and maybe a ColecoVision if they’re feeling cheeky. You get a bunch of old classic games and then have the teens play them. I guarantee they’d be fascinated. Heck, at this point in time they’d probably figure it was a history lesson . . . and they’d be right.

Best Children's Books of 2011

Best Children's Books of 2011 | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Compiling our best-books-of-the-year lists is a process that is both exciting and heartbreaking. Exciting, because I get to steep myself in the year's great books, and heartbreaking, because I have to pick favorites. After considerable solitary soul-searching and spirited back-and-forth with our corps of reviewers, I am pleased to present our Best Books for Children. Here you will find books that will thrill, tickle, stimulate, soothe and enlighten kids from the very youngest to early teens. There are heartfelt explorations of the natural world and loving celebrations of the closeness of family, ruminative picture books and adventures to get the blood pounding. And three, count them, three novels featuring mice.
