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    
Cover Art10,000 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

Cover ArtBeegu
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

Cover ArtClick, 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

by Katzen, Mollie, 1950-

Cover ArtThe teddy bear
by McPhail David, 1940-
This book contains an amazing ethical dilemma. A boy loses a bear that is taken in by a homeless man, who truly needs comfort. When the boy finds the bear months later, who does it belong to? This is a great book for finding out how your child thinks about ownership and compassion.   posted Jul 30, 2009 at 7:24PM

Cover ArtThe Lorax
by Geisel, Theodor Seuss, 1904-1991.

Cover ArtTwo bad ants
by Van Allsburg, Chris.
The discussion starts with the title: why are these ants bad? The illustrations and descriptions are purely from the point of view of the ants. Can your kids guess what's being shown?   posted Jul 30, 2009 at 7:17PM
