YABBA – The Young Australians Best Book Awards
http://yabba.org.au/
YABBA – The Young Australians Best Book Awards
The Young Australians Best Book Awards (YABBA) were established in 1985 by a group of Victorians keen to see children engage in reading Australian books.
Run by a volunteer committee our goal after more than 25 years is still the same.
We seek to provide children a voice within the general Australian children’s book industry.
The YABBA Awards encourages children to read recent Australian published books, rate them against all others and then finally reward that book they feel is best.
During Term 1 each year children across Victoria are asked to recommend their favourite Australian books to other children by nominating their four favourite Australian titles. All nominations are collated and the 10 books with the most nominations in each of the award categories are the shortlisted books for that year.

Free, Open-Source Digital Textbooks
http://tcrn.ch/XP9ZDW
Free, Open-Source Digital Textbook Provider, Boundless, Releases Its Content Under Creative Commons Licence.
Since first emerging early last year, Boston-based startup Boundless has been on a mission to give students a free alternative to the financial and physical costs of bulky backpacks brimming with pricey hard-copy textbooks.
Co-founders Ariel Diaz, Brian Balfour and Aaron White believe that the incumbents, the old-school textbook publishers (the top four of which still control the market) have been driving up the cost of educational content for years, so Boundless has been fighting the Powers That Be by offering a free, digital alternative culled from existing, open educational resources.

Find a Book
http://www.lexile.com/findabook/
The idea behind The Lexile Framework for Reading is simple: if we know how well a student can read and how hard a specific book is to comprehend, we can predict how well that student will likely understand the book.
When used together, Lexile measures help a reader find books and articles at an appropriate level of difficulty (visit Find a Book ), and determine how well that reader will likely comprehend a text. You also can use Lexile measures to monitor a reader's growth in reading ability over time.
