The New Monarch Award Master List is up--and I'm ready to read them. I really like the reading program in Illinois, it is an excellent resource to find well-written books. Every year, the library system creates a list of books, not necessarily new and allows the kids to vote on their favorite book. Near the end of the school year, a winner is picked, and right before summer a new list is published for the next year. Without fail, every year, I fall in love with the list and its books: both fiction and nonfiction.
So my first love, of the year is Jimmy the Joey, by Deborah Lee Rose and Susan Kelly.
