Best Children's Books of 2009

Just in time to make those Christmas purchases for the children in your life, Publishers Weekly has posted their list of the top 100 books for children published in 2009.

Hitting the top spot for a picture book is Chris Barton's "The Day-Glo Brothers: The True Story of Bob and Joe Switzer's Bright Ideas and Brand-New Colors". The brothers developed the first flourescent paint which was initially used by the military. Illustrated by Tony Persiani, PW describes this book as a tale about following your dreams.

  1. You know, I saw that list and I am shocked at how lop-sided it is. Did you feel that way?

  2. Interesting. Never even heard of The Day-Glo Brothers. Thanks!

  3. Hmm... I'll have to look for that one. It sounds interesting.

  4. Corey - I hadn't either. Guess it takes a picture book to teach us all something new.
