31 Days, 31 Lists of Great Books for Kids

Betsy Bird’s annual marathon of standout titles in children’s literature, from the unconventional to the informational. 

Betsy Bird is running an end-of-year marathon on her blog, “A Fuse #8 Production.”
In what has become an annual tradition, Bird—collection development manager at Evanston (IL) Public Library—posts a booklist a day in December, representing her accounting of the year in children’s literature, in categories ranging from American history and funny books to picture book readalouds and comics and graphic novels.
