Meet Booker T. Worm. He's the host of KidsReads (http:// www.kidsreads.com), which features book reviews and lists of award-winning books to guide parents and children in choosing a good book. The site also allows your child to sign up for a reading club where she can set goals and monitor the number of books she's read. (Yes, there are prizes!) Kids can send letters to their favorite authors through a message board. Finally, browse the "bookshelf" where you can read classics ranging from "Black Beauty" to "Pinocchio" online. This site is one section of the Book Report Network, which has a similar Web site for teen-age readers (http:// www.teenreads.com) launching this month.
