Handy Lists for You!

For the past six weeks or so, Betsy Bird over at Fuse #8 has been conducting a poll to determine the top 100 picture books and chapter books (according to her followers).   If you missed reading the daily posts describing each book in the top 100 countdowns, the folks at SLJ have promised to put them into some handy lists for us.  Register to receive the email with PDF here and then use the lists for parents and teachers and students for readers’ advisory.

It was nice to see Charlotte’s Web in the number one spot for chapter books, particularly since this October is the 60th anniversary of the book’s publication.  It’s been a favorite of mine for a long, long time.  Want to read another great book by E.B. White?  A book written for adults?  Try One Man’s MeatWhite’s collection of essays about being a gentleman farmer in Maine.  Excellent!
