Crystal Vaagen (crystalvaagen) As we wrap up the year, it's gone by rather quickly, I'd like to know how many or what type of children's books have influenced you/your family/your classroom this year. What topic has been popular? As the author of the "Robbie Zero, Super Girl Hero" series, an anti-bullying series, I realize that social issues are important. But I'm wondering, besides my book, what are kids/parents reading?

The three books that have influenced my classroom the most this year are: The House on Mango Street, Of Mice and Men and A Raisin in the Sun.

How old are your students? Those aren't children's books, despite the fact that some mature teens are reading them.

Crystal, since nobody is answering your original query and this thread is turning into a mess, feel free to delete it. You might have better luck in the official Authors Group, or in a group more specifically welcoming of authors.

Crystal Vaagen (crystalvaagen) Thank you Cheryl, but I think I'll keep this thread. I have hope and there is no hurry to answer.

Crystal Vaagen (crystalvaagen) Taneeka, the last two books I recall reading in school myself. Those are great books.

Taneeka, that's fine. It's just that this is a children's group, not YA. And Crystal was asking about *new* books, in the original post, not classic adult reads that are being used in the schools.
