But… it was such an excellent post that I emailed her back to ask if I could just list the books and link it back to School Library Journal. She’s so nice that she said yes and it’s been a popular post because she’s really knows her children’s lit! And her picks are dead on! I bought a slew of her picks for my oldest who read every single one of them and pronounced them great. A few were slow starts where it was an effort to get into the book, but she chugged through and ended up enjoying every pick. I need to buy more books for my oldest and I will use this list!
