Having been a teacher for 33 years, I've read a good many of these books. Blessed be to authors of exquisite books for young readers.

I loved that list--I am a big fan of lists and book lists imparticular. I know, call me a big nerd. Anyway, I have read almost all of them. The ones I haven't read are ones I have wanted to read so now I have a good reason to read them, so I can mark it off your list!

I love this too! Almost all of the books Madi and I have read in our mother-daughter bookclub are on this list. A lot of the books I PLAN to read but haven't yet are on here too. There are a few good ones you haven't read yet, specifically The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, I love that, just read it to Jake this Christmas. Dotty Kay just told me about Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, I need to request that from the library.

I read about 48 of the books ... some with my son and some on my own. Some of my all-time favorite books are on this list ... and one book that I would take of this list in a heartbeat!
