The new Com Cat union catalog has a Reader Review feature where students and teachers can rank books and post reviews—just like Amazon.com. This would be an excellent reading and writing motivator to use with students. Reader Review is an optional feature that each school teacher librarian can turn on and off.
Roxie and the Hooligans or Three Cups of Tea have reviews for demonstration purposes. Go to Com Cat and enter the titles to see what the possibilities can be in your school. Go to http://comcat-agent.auto-graphics.com.
