May 19-23, 2013 is Children’s Book Week! All week at The Jenny Evolution, I’m going to celebrate awesome children’s books by offering lots of book ideas for you to share with your child. And the lists will include fabulous reads for toddlers to elementary and junior high kids.
This week, be sure to visit for the following lists:
- Caldecott Awards Winners of the 21st Century
- Interactive Board Books
- Great Adventure Chapter Stories for Girls
- Fun Adventure Chapter Books for Boys
- Wonderful Series in Picture Books
Ever wonder how I come up with my lists? I’m on a first-name basis with our local librarians! As a family, we visit the library at least every other week, checking out more than a dozen books each time. Before I knew it, my boys had helped me figure out which books would speak to kids their age and which ones wouldn’t. (They are some seriously tough judges, too.)
I create my own list of ideas, researching for any that may have slipped my mind. Then I whittle down the list, often visiting the library to reread or review the books. Trust me, these lists don’t put themselves together. Any book that appears in any of my lists are personally recommended by me.
I hope you continue to join me in discussing these books. And, as always, I hope to get your feedback and offer your own suggestions.
