Children's Book-A-Day Almanac
Anita Silvey at the library and it is a goldmine of information about children's literature. For each day of the year, Silvey chose a book to write about. Some are classics-The Hobbit, Goodnight Moon, and Pippi Longstocking. Others are more recent-Duck on a Bike, Esperanza Rising, and Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse. She includes a summary of the book and interesting facts about the author or book. After looking through it this afternoon, I made a list of more than a dozen books that I have not heard of and will look for at my library. I recommend this book for any teacher, librarian, or parent looking for new books to share with children.
