Topic: Children's Choices, 2010, Grades 5 - 6

About Children’s Choices: “Each ear 12,500 school children from different regions of the United States read newly published children’s and young adults’ trade books and vote for the ones they like best. These Children’s Choices, selected from more than 500 titles, can be counted on as books children really enjoy reading. This list, a project of a joint committee supported by IRA (International Reading Association) and The Children’s Book Council (CBC), is designed for use not only by teachers, librarians, administrators, and booksellers but also by parents, grandparents, caregivers, and everyone who wishes to encourage young people to read for pleasure.”

Title: “Children’s Choices, 2010.” Reading Teacher (October 2010), C1-C10.

Advanced Readers (Grades 5 – 6)
