Oprah’s Kids Reading List
Great news! Oprah’s Book Club has teamed up with the American Library Association (ALA), to create the Kids Reading List. The list has been divided into separate categories: Infant-2, 3-5 Years, 6-9 Years, 10-12, 12 and Up, and Classics. The lists can be found at the website of Oprah’s Book Club and are based on the recommendations from the ALA. Each list has two pages: the first page is for new releases and the second is for classics – except, of course, the list titled ‘Classics’ which is made entirely of … classics.
As I read each list I was really impressed by the selections – in particular Infant-2, 3-5 Years, and 10-12, which really stand out as great picks. Some of the books I have reviewed made the list: Monkey and Me by Emily Gravett, A Visitor for Bear by Bonny Becker, Savvy by Ingrid Law, and one that is on my waiting-to-be-reviewed list: The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry.
