Easy Reading: I Will Surprise My Friend!
More Year's Best Kids Books, New York Times Book Review

Best Books of '08, from School Library Journal

School Library Journal chose its kids' books of the year, and readers can see the whole list at SLJ's web site. I didn't agree with a couple of its choices, but thinking it over, I remembered that school libraries support the curriculum (as my son would say, "Duh"). SLJ's choices are bound to be different from mine. That's why it's important for this continuing conversation about children's books to encompass a broad range of viewpoints.

Ooh, thanks! I'm going to go request some of those picture books I haven't seen. There are a few on there not recognizable to me.

Happy Thanksgiving!

And back at you, Jules. Have a lovely T'giving.

I'm *already* enjoying it, since I have less work this week and more time to visit my favorite blogs, like yours. :) It's almost decadent.
