  1. Getting caught up on my blog reading. I would have to say my favorite MG this year was One for the Murphys and my favorite picture book was Noah Webster and His Words. I also loved Meet Me at the Moon. Looking at your list, I see I have some reading to do!


I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
