|Lisa Stuart's Book Lists|
|Picture Books about Libraries and Librarians (18 titles)
These are the books we shared with the Wenonah first graders when they visited Roosevelt Library in the 2009-2010 school year.
|Great 2009 Holiday Gifts for Babies, Kids and Teens (24 titles)
My recommendations for books to give as gifts this year. The list includes books published in the last few years, plus some older "sleepers" that you may have missed when they first came out. Enjoy and happy shopping!
|Complex Stories for Young Philosophers (11 titles)
Are those ants being bad or just adventurous? Is the onceler selfish? What about the little boy who lost his bear? These stories will lead to the best discussions with your youngsters-- you'll be surprised by their answers!
|Wordless Books I Love to Share (6 titles)
Wordless books challenge the "reader" to create their own version of the story. They also invite children to become storytellers and in this way "own" the reading process.
|My Favorite Mysteries (8 titles)
|Lisa Stuart's Comments|
|10,000 dresses |
by Ewert, Marcus.
The gender of the main character changes depending on the perspective. Is Bailey a girl or a boy? And why does that matter? Either way, Bailey is a kid that loves dresses. posted May 27, 2010 at 7:14PM
by Deacon, Alexis.
A young alien is lost on Earth. The way he is treated by different people lends itself to great discussions about strangeness. posted May 27, 2010 at 7:11PM
|Click, clack, moo : cows that type |
by Cronin, Doreen.
Labor negotiations for young workers! My favorite line is: "Duck was a neutral party..." It's fun to explain this to youngsters. posted May 27, 2010 at 7:10PM
|Farmer John's cookbook : the real dirt on vegetables |
by Peterson, John.
Want to bake a delicious chocolate cake made from beets? Need to know how to cook the romanesco your three-year-old picked out at the farmer's market? This is the book for you! posted Sep 29, 2009 at 10:46AM
