Time to revisit one of my early website recommendations - especially since book gift-giving season is right around the corner. Written by Jennifer M. Brown, a current writer for School Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews - (ok, I'm impressed) -, Twenty by Jenny offers lists of classic books for 4 different age groups. She reviews books monthly and you can subscribe to her online newsletter for updates.
Check out her blog, for Encounters of the Literary Kind, and more in-depth kids' books news. There is a delightful background look at the beginnings of Bear Has a Story to Tell by Philip C. and Erin E.Stead on Jenny's blog.
