School Library Journal Posts Best Books for Kids 2011
Thanks to a friend, I was directed to the list of 65 books School Library Journal has chosen as the best of 2011. Categories begin with picture books and continue with fiction, non-fiction, and adult books for teens. If you are looking for holiday presents or just titles to encourage your child to love reading, check out this list, which includes Michigan author Shutta Crum's picture book!
You'll also find books I've recommended here on the list for teens.
CRUM, Shutta. Mine! illus. by Patrice Barton. Knopf/Borzoi. Tr $16.99. ISBN 978-0-375-86711-8.
PreS-Gr 2–As an intrepid toddler struggles to take possession of a passel of playthings, he is keenly observed by a frolicsome pup and a winsome infant who is preparing to make her move. The characters’ spot-on body language and facial expressions create a virtuoso visual portrayal of nascent social skills. (June)
