We’re nearly halfway through December, and I’m so happy to be able to write so many nice things lately! Before you can say that I’m not critical enough of some of these books, I do follow the rubric I wrote when I’m grading them. Long gone are the days of my childhood, when books were judged primarily by simple reasoning: did it make me cry? Did it make me laugh? Did I like the end?
But what better way to celebrate the joy of childhood and this time of year than by honoring some amazing books? If you’re looking for gifts for the children in your life, these would be perfect.
So, to those of you out there who celebrate Hanukkah, may you have a wonderful holiday!
