If you're looking for an idea of what new children's books to read, you simply must head on over to MotherReader's blog. She's just posted a compiled list of everyone's suggestions (17 contributors) for Top Picks of 2006 (so far). The list is broken down by category: high school, middle school, elementary, younger elementary, picture books, and non-fiction. She has included a key, so that you can see who suggested each book. Books that I noticed that had a bunch of votes included The Book Thief, King Dork, and Babymouse: Beach Babe. But there's plenty of variety, too. I know that I won't lack for ideas for what books to read for the rest of the year.
