December 7, 2009

Jon Scieszka (rhymes with Fresca) appeared on The Early Show over the weekend to recommend 5 outstanding titles for children of all ages.  In 2008 Mr. Scieszka was named the Inaugural National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature by the Library of Congress.

Mr. Scieszka’s picks for picture books.

  1. The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg
  2. Moon Shot by Brian Floca
  3. Guess Again by Mac Barnett, Adam Rex illustrator
  4. Never Smile at a Monkey by Steve Jenkins
  5. Little Oink by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Jen Corace illustrator

The CBS story has additional holiday picks for older children.
