30 Top Books List

School Library Journal posted the Top 100 Picture Book Poll of 2009. From that list, The Bookworm's Booklist has created a fun blog project!

The book's we have read are highlighted in green. It looks like we have five books we will need to read this summer! From this list, M's favorite is #30 (Brown Bear), T's favorite is #1(Where the Wild Things Are), my favorite is #23 (Bread and Jam for Frances) and J's favorite is #24(Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom). Some of our absolute favorites made the Top 100 list, but not this list. Those include Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type; Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs; If You Give a Mouse A Cookie; The Polar Express; We're Going on A Bear Hunt and The Paper Bag Princess. Here's what you do:
