Holiday Book Suggestions

I heard that groan! Yes, it is early to shop for Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa but with the economy the way it is, we all find it easier to spend a little at a time rather than save that huge outlay for one weekend. Here is a few of School Library Journal's Best Books of 2010:

Shark vs. Train by Chris Barton.

Seasons by Blexbolex.

Me and You
by Anthony Browne.

Clever Jack Takes the Cake by Candace Fleming.

The Boss Baby by Marla Frazee.

Don't Want to Go by Shirley Hughes.

Dust Devil by Anne Isaacs.

Monsters Eat Whiny Children

by Bruce Eric Kaplan.

Snook Alone by Marilyn Nelson.

Animal Crackers Fly the Coop
by Kevin O'Malle

Take some time and check these out. These are just a few of the excellent books mentioned in School Library Journal's article.
