Betsy Bird is running a poll over at her SJL blog Fuse#8 Production. Everyone was asked to send in their top ten chapter books by Jan. 31
I'd thought I'd share my top 10 and two predictions.
1. Money Hungry by Sharon Flake
2. Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis
3. I Wanna Be Your Shoebox by Cristina Gracia
4. Millicent Min, Girl Genius by Lisa Yee
5 Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor
6 To Be a Slave by Julius Lester
7 Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin
8 Yankee Girl by Mary Ann Rodman
9 Return to Sender by Julia Alvarez
10. The Prince of Fenway Park by Julianna Baggott
My predictions for the poll
1. There will not be more then five authors of color on the list.
2.Though it's only been out since 2008 Laurie Halse Anderson's Chains will make the list.
