It's Time for our First "Official" Reading List

How time flies! It's already time for us to put out our first "official" Mock Newbery Reading List for the year. We plan to have four reading lists over the course of the year.

What titles need to be on this first list? We really value your input & suggestions of titles! Just email your suggestions to mvoors@acpl.info or post your suggested titles here in the comments. We look forward to hearing from you.

I'd like to see Anything but Typical and The Year the Swallows Came Early on the list.

Thanks, Kris! We'll make sure those titles are part of the first reading list.

The for sures as I see it are:
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P Figg, The Problem with the Puddles, and most espicially When You Reach Me.

Thanks so much for your input, DaNae. I'll make sure these 4 titles are added to the first "official" reading list.

My favorites so far are,
Anything but Typical,
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate,
and
All the Broken Pieces.

Thanks, Sunnie. We'll make sure these titles are part of the first reading list. (I especially share your admiration for The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate -- thanks for your comments on that title.)

When the Whistle Blows

Oh, and The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo if you can include books that aren't quite out yet...

Mary said...

Thanks for your two suggestions. We try to wait until the books are published -- and a bit more widely available -- before we put them on our "official" reading lists, so look for When the Whistle Blows and The Magician's Elephant on a future reading list later this year. I will try to get them both listed on our blog as soon as we have entries in our library catalog so you can make comments about them.

Thanks again for your suggestions!

Definitely, All the Broken Pieces and The Year the Swallows Came Early. I know they've already been mentioned here; I just wanted to second them!
