New Website for Advanced Young Readers Developed by Senior at CBA

Hello CBA families,

Hope you are having a great summer so far! I am a rising senior at CBA and I wanted to tell you about a website that I have launched. It is called Voracious Bookworms, tailored to the needs of advanced young readers who are capable of reading books intended for older readers and adults. On this website, you will find my book reviews written for all readers, but also with an added note on the appropriateness of the book. Here is the link:


I hope you will check it out and sign up for email notifications. Drop me a line to let me know what you think! I will be publishing lots of book reviews this summer!

Thank you,
Annabelle Song

Piano Tuner Recommendation Request

We recently received a piano and it needs tuning. Can anyone recommend a piano tuner in this area?


Kelli Rueger

Violin Teacher wanted

I’m interested in recommendations for a violin teacher who hopefully lives in or near my area. I’m in 20904 (on or near 29/Fairland/Randolph/Cherry Hill/ICC) and would prefer not to have to drive more than 5 or 10 minutes for lessons for my two daughters (6 and 10). Though they would both be beginner violinists, both play other instruments and read music. I would prefer they take the lesson at the same time (the older would go as slow as the younger needs).

Does anyone know of a violin teacher near me who they would recommend for the situation I have described above?
