Top 100 Young Adult (YA) Novels: From Persnickety Snark based on a poll she ran all year.
Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! These are the 2010 winners.
I wasn’t familiar with this award though I do know about the Simon Wissenthal Museum from living in Los Angeles. My art teacher had a piece exhibited there and he said that it was the highlight of his career. I went through the past winner list and I haven’t read all the books, but the ones I have read (Though My Eyes, The Year of Miss Agnes, So Far from the Sea) are OUTSTANDING so it makes me want to read the entire list of winners, both past and present.
In November 2010, New Hampshire children from preschoolers to those in third grade will be invited to vote for the winner of the 2010 Ladybug Picture Book Award. Voting materials, including a picture ballot and tally sheets will be available on this website in June.
Our school librarian at our elementary school always has a shelf dedicated to these books and there is a challenge to the the 5th Graders to read the entire list. The reviews are from the Acton Memorial Library.
