Happy Holidays and “Best Of” Book Lists for 2014
We wish all of you a peaceful and joyous holiday season. On January 5th, we’ll be back with a regular posting. In the meantime, we wanted to share a collection of “Best of 2014” lists. Please feel free to add to our collection of links by submitting a favorite “best of” listing of your own in a comment.
Click on each title for the full list.
Additionally, we thought our teacher and librarian friends would be interested in this latest position statement on leisure reading, co-published by the International Reading Association (IRA), the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), and the Canadian Children’s Book Centre.
