Title Tidbits from the Children’s Room

What’s the Best Book You Read in 2009?

As we round the bend to a New Year, we asked some of our Children’s Room readers and staff: 

What’s the BEST book you read in 2009?  

Here’s a sampling of the answers:

GM, age 2:  The Nutshell Library by Maurice Sendak . She loves little, little, little books.  (Parent coached!)

PM and SA, age 4:  All the Madeleine books by Ludwig Bemelmans because all the girls stand in a line, wear the same dresses, and do the same thing all together. And these books rhyme!  “And we remember the rhymes!”

CA, age 5: “Dr Seuss books. I love them all because they’re silly and filled with very, very funny words!”

MRN, age 8: “Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve (The Magic Tree House; #30) by Mary Pope Osborne.  I love mysteries, and this is a great mystery story.  I recommend it to all kids.”

NT, age 8:  “The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. I loved this book for the pictures.  You can follow the whole story in the pictures!”
