I read about the "Reading Rooster Recommends" in the articles I cited in my previous post. The SC State University Library blog regularly posts this special children's book recommendation video via YouTube. I think this is such a useful tool for parents, librarians and teachers when locating good reading materials for children. This is not just a resource for the patrons of the library but for any one that has access to YouTube. Of course, if a person does not have access to YouTube, they will miss this rich resource. The unfortunate limitation of this resource is that if I hadn't read about "Reading Rooster Recommends" in an article I might have never found it. What could compliment this presentation would be a text version of the script along with the post, for regular viewers who may be in a hurry. This brings me to the one thing I dislike about it. It would be helpful to have the books that are recommended in a list that may be searched outside of YouTube.
