really liked it
bookshelves: applied-project-books

I didn't think that I would read this cover-to-cover. I thought I would just skim the sections about genres that I'm unfamiliar with and skip over everything else - but I couldn't put it down! I really enjoyed the collection of voices and the insight into a wide variety of reading material. Some of the information was very familiar (girl books, for example) and other sections were very informative (board books and preschool science books - who knew?). Perhaps my favorite little passage was the interview with Maurice Sendak. My to-read list grew enormously after reading this book.

I borrowed a copy from a friend, but I think that I may purchase a copy for my own personal resource library. I worry about this book becoming dated, however - in how many years will we look back at the recommendations and think, "Oh, that book was SO 2010-2011"?
