Notable Children’s Books

One of the most interesting sessions to stop in and see at any point during the conference is the Notable Children’s Books committee discussion. Whereas many committees meet behind closed doors, this group invited anyone at the conference to come and listen in as the committees discusses, literally every book on the list. The committee gives a brief synopsis of the book and then the committee discusses both he positive aspects of he story as well as concerns they may have about the book. Their discussion about these books brings up all aspects of the story the language, the storytelling, character development, as well as plot and setting. If you’re interested in the books on the Notable Children’s Discussion list, take a look and see what you think will make it!
