Bank Street College of Education: 2012 Best Children's Books of the Year.
This list is new to me, but there are a lot of super picks on it: The Other Countess! A Monster Calls! Jasper Jones! The Girl of Fire and Thorns! Chime! Blood Red Road!
Anyway, to save myself a whole load of typing, I created a Pinterest board of the titles I've reviewed. Why haven't I thought of doing that before?
