Second Reading List for 2012 Mock Newbery

It’s finally here! The second reading list for this year's ACPL Mock Newbery! This program will be held at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana on January 14, 2012. While we will continue to highlight and discuss a wide variety of children's books on our blog -- and we encourage comments on all of them -- the books on this list and on our first list are destined to be 'brought to the table' to be discussed in more depth at our “in person” Mock Newbery Discussion and Election. Our third and final list will be posted in mid-November.

So… without further ado… here are the ten titles on our second short list:
We welcome continued online discussion through this blog and invite you to join us for our "in person" discussion to be held at our Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Are you taking suggestions for the third list? My vote is for THE AVIARY by Kathleen O'Dell.

Julie - Several other people suggested this title as well... We were just waiting for our Library's copy to come in before we added it to the list. Thanks for your comment! We'll add it to the blog and make sure The Aviary is on the 3rd and final reading list.
