  • Bookwink - Bookwink's mission is to inspire kids to read. Through podcasting and web video, we hope to connect to kids in Grades 3 through 8 with books that will make them excited about reading. Each video booktalk is about a different topic, and additional read-alikes can be found on the Bookwink website. You can look for books by subject, grade level, author or title. We are constantly updating the booklists with our newest favorite books.
