Home to the Children’s Book Council, this site is most useful for its impressive number of book reviews and lists, and the information it contains on news and events in the world of children’s literature.  The site also keeps visitors up to date happenings such as book awards, books turning into movies and other special occurrences, and maintains a separate section to announce news, contests, events and other happenings from members (such as authors and publishers). 

A particularly nice feature of the site is “Hot off the Press.”  Found right on the home page, it showcases books that have just been or are about to be published, helping book buyers stay up to date easily.  Though it seems somewhat limited in scope, the CBC Web page is definitely one to visit regularly.
