Regular readers know I share a children’s book list every Monday. I try hard to make these book lists useful for you, making sure I don’t simply include popular books that you already know about and (usually) avoiding themes or topics you can easily search for in your library’s card catalog. It’s so interesting to see which lists are the most widely read and shared. This year the clear winners were the chapter book lists.
You can click directly on any of them images in the collage below to go straight to the list. Text links and the order of the top ten are located below the collage. Don’t forget to bookmark the index of all my book lists.
Here are the top book lists visited this year. I’ve indicated which ones have a publication date of 2012:
- Chapter Books for Preschoolers (2012 – it was last year’s top pick, too.)
- Summer Reading Chapter Books for Independent Readers (kids ages 7-10)
- Early Chapter Books about Boys (stand alone novels)
- Math Chapter Books
- Early Chapter Books Series about Girls
- Early Chapter Books Series about Boys
- Summer Reading Chapter Books for Reading Aloud Together (you guys like your summer reading!)
- Classic Children’s Books from the 1960s (2012)
- Early Chapter Books about Animals
- Classic Children’s Books from the 1970s (2012)
I can tell you guys like your chapter books for kids ages 7-10! Not a single picture book list made the cut of the top ten! I can see I have my work cut out for me in 2014 because chapter book lists take a lot more reading time to make. I guess I won’t be getting much sleep over the next year if I’m going to keep up with your demands.
I’d love to hear from you. Were these useful lists for you? Are your favorites on this list?
