Our MiddleWeb Book Review Program
With help from volunteer readers (learn more), MiddleWeb publishes reviews of professional books that may be of interest to educators working with grades 4-8. You can visit our book review category to read short summaries of reviews, with the most recent reviews listed first.
Want to review for us? Here’s how!
You can also use our search tool (upper right corner of any page – it’s the magnifying glass icon) to search by title, topic or author. Some books may have several reviews.
You can also try these topical categories:
Social Studies | Science | Mathematics | Reading | Writing | Literacy | New Teachers | Leadership | Classroom Management | SEL | Engagement | Assessment | English Learners
