2014 Notable Books – How Did the Committee Do?

Warning

The results are in for the 2014 Notable Children’s Books chosen by the Association For Library Service to Children.  ML and my choices can be viewed at Notable Children’s Books:  ML’s Favorites and Mine.

When I compared ML and my picks with the winners, I was both excited and disappointed.  I admit, we haven’t read all the books which made the list for Younger Readers.  I requested the titles our library owns.  In a future post, I’ll share ML’s opinion on the books we haven’t read.

In the meantime, the book we are most disappointed not on the list, Little Red Writing by Joan Holub and illustrated by Melissa Sweet.   On a positive note, we are thrilled Warning:  Do Not Open This Book by Adam Lehrhaupt and illustrated by Matthew Forsythe made the list.  A sequel will be available Fall 2014 – Please:  Open This Book.  Three cheers for more monkey mayhem.
