Need ideas for texts that have something in common?

  • type the title of a work in the search box and under Word search criteria, click the radio button by exact phrase and then click the red Search button. Other titles that you see are there because a reviewer mentioned the book you searched in her/his review of another book, meaning they have something in common - read the review to find out what that is
  • type a topic in the search box and under Word search criteria, click the radio button by word variants, and under Search specific fields, click the radio button by Review.

For reviews of works by a particular author/illustrator, type the full name in the search box and under Search specific fields, click the radio button by Author/Illustrator.

The reviews themselves, while not critical/scholarly articles, can count as sources in your bibliography if you quote / paraphrase material from them.
