Welcome to one of many librarian blogs on the Internet! My name is Melina and I will be evaluating youth literature and digital media. Entries will factor in Quantitative reading levels and Content Standards. Entries consider Common Core Standards, California Content Standards, AASL, and Model School Standards. Quantitative Reading Levels are determined using Read- Ability Score.com (text) and the Readability Test Tool (Website). Enjoy!!

This blog may also feature some humour, people first advocacy, and plant based nutrition tidbits. Librarians are eclectic types. Party on.

Thanks for stopping by =)

I aspire to be this woman when I’m older. 

YASSSSSSS!

This woman was born before women were legally allowed to vote.

So don’t think for a second that she’s joking when she sees you trying to take that right away, Republicans.
