Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Best of the year Non-fiction! This is the last list. Notice that Heart and Soul (which showed up on every single best-of-the-year list I consulted, even the ones that are not included in the Wordle) is listed both in the Picture Book list and this Nonfiction list--that is because it is listed in both categories by various journals.

Click on this Wordle so you can see a full-size, readable link and print it. The larger the title, the more frequently it was listed in a Best of the Year list. Sources consulted include: School Library Journal, Hornbook, Kirkus, Publishers Weekly and New York Times.

Wordle: Best of Year Juvenile Nonfiction

Monday, December 19, 2011

In about 1/8 the amount of time, I created a Wordle for the Best Juvenile Fiction Books of 2011. I guess once you use it once, you get the hang of it. Feel free to click on the link and print for teachers, people looking for gift ideas, and kids who are looking for a good book. It was created from Best of the Year lists in School Library Journal, Hornbook, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and New York Times.
