2012 Notable Children’s Books in the Language Arts

NCTE’s Children’s Literature Assembly‘s Notable Children’s Books in the Language Arts Committee works with great focus all year (I should know having served on it as a member and chair) to read widely and then ends up with a list of children’s books for grades K-8 that focus on language (e.g. word play and origins), uniqueness in language and style, and invite child response and participation.   This year’s list can be viewed here and I hope you agree with me that it is a very fine list indeed. My congratulations to all the creators on the list and the 2012 committee:

April Bedford—Chair
Donalyn Miller, Nancy Roser, Tracy Smiles, Yoo Kyung Sung, Barbara Ward, Trish Bandre
Mary Lee Hahn—Past Chair
