We are continuing our series of How to Select Books. This week we are talking about choosing books from a list. I showed them several books with list including Anita Silvey’s 100 Best Books for Children and Jim Trelease’s Read Aloud Handbook.
I also talked about lists that can be downloaded from the internet including Amazon’s Best Children’s Books and NEA ‘s Teacher’s Top 100 List. We then read a book from the Teacher’s Top 100 List – Harold and the Purple Crayon .
