Back to School Books Wanted
I know, I know.
It's closer to the 100 days of school books time than it is to back-to-school books time.
Every year we children's librarians revise some of the booklist handouts that we lay around our libraries to help adults find great books for children.
This year, I've signed myself up to revise our library's Back to School booklist and I was just wondering if there were some newish (or old favorites) out there that I might not be aware of. If you have a favorite book you use every year to get kids ready for school, or a great new one you've just discovered, please let me know (in the comments section of the blog) and I'll try to get it/ them onto this booklist.
I might even post the final list, if anyone is interested in seeing it.
Oh, and if you haven't heard already, Betsy Bird over on Fuse # 8 is making a list of the All-Time-Best Picture books. She'd like you to send her your list of what you think are the top 10 picture books ever published -- since they began publishing picture books in America. She's going to moosh them together into a massive "Top 100 Picture Books of All Time."
Okay, that's two projects for you. Back to School books to me -- anywhere in the comments section is fine. And your Top Ten Picture Books of All Time to Betsy. Thanks.
