Has anyone noticed how close we are getting to Review #100? Really close!
We've spent the last two and a half years recommending our favorite books to all of you. I thought in honor of this 100th Review milestone we would do something special. We'll give one of you, our readers, the chance to pick the book for our 100th review. We'll do this a little differently from our first Readers' Pick. Instead of us giving a list of recommendations and you voting, this time we'll do it the other way around.
In the comments, suggest one book that you would like to see the Z-Kids review. Any book at all. New. Old. Classic. Unknown. Picture book. Graphic novel. Chapter book. Board book. And yep, you only get to suggest one. Tough decision! If someone has already listed your favorite, go ahead and use your comment to suggest another. Multiple votes for the same book won't give it any more weight.
We will do our best over the next couple of weeks to locate as many of your recommendations as we can. I look forward to seeing how many will be books that we already know and love, and how many will be new discoveries for us! After we spend time with the books you all have suggested, I'll let the kids each rate their favorites. I'll tally up their votes, and the book with the most points wins the distinction of Bookie Woogie Review #100! (And who knows, perhaps some runners-up might find their ways into future reviews...)
Update: Thanks for all the suggestions! Here's what you recommended:
