Books Reviewed

This is an alphabetized list of all kidlit reviewed during 2022 on Bookworm for Kids. Each title is accompanied by genre in the rest of the categories. Those reads, which especially caught my interest, receive a star and might just make it onto my favorite list at the end of the year. Have fun!

New! I've added a Chapter Book section as well as a Graphic Novel one (at the end) for improved ease of finding the types of books you may be looking for!
