The December 2012 issue of Parents magazine arrived in my mailbox today, and one of the cover stories was about the 10 best children’s books of the year! I thought that rather timely considering that I just compiled a list of great gift books for kids, but I was thrilled to find that one book I’ve recently reviewed and one author whose work I’ve featured showed up on the list!
Wonder, by R.J. Palacio, was listed as a top big-kid chapter book, and Sky Color, by Peter H. Reynolds (The Dot), was the featured big-kid picture book! Check out the rest of the list on pages 88-90 of the magazine or online here! (Apparently, you can get even more “kid-fave” book ideas in their tablet edition.)
