SF Gate, the online branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, features lots of reviews of children's books for Sunday, May 28th. One of them is the excellent Sky Boys, Deborah Hopkinson's story of the construction of the Empire State Building. Other reviews center on California-related reads, including the John Muir biography that blogger Chris Barton cited last week. Beginning chapter books get a nod; Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride and especially its author, Kate DiCamillo, receive high praise. You'll also find science fiction, local Bay area authors, and more.
