We last featured The Pirate Tree in the 11-11-2016 Scout Report, and this project continues to be a great resource for finding books for children and teenagers that engage with social justice issues.
Librarians, youth workers, educators, and parents may be interested in The Pirate Tree, "a collective of children's and young adult writers interested in children's literature and social justice issues." With regular editors and writers as well as a number of guest writers, The Pirate Tree features synopses of recently published books, author interviews, and book reviews. Each entry includes a number of tags that allow visitors to search for related books on specific topics of interest. Tags include, for example, historical fiction, environment, gender, disability, peace, and family, to name just a few. As the diversity of these subject tags highlights, The Pirate Tree is committed to featuring a wide variety of books across all genres. Reading levels range from picture books to young adult fiction.
