The students voted on their favorite books and this is their top ten. Many of the books are part of a series of books such as Curious George, Rotten Ralph, Star Wars graphic novels, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Scooby-Doo.
Their choices reflect both a mixture of books that we read to them and books they enjoy reading independently. You can see my influence in the Curious George books and Lauren's with the Rotten Ralph series. Also, it does not hurt to make a school visit if you are a children's author. Three of George O'Connor's books made it to the top ten!
Our librarian Sara typed out this list and laminated it for each of our students (and did a similiar thing for each class, for each grade in the school and their top ten lists).
As we prepare the students for summer reading , this may be a helpful reminder of past favorites and inspire the acquistion of new ones.
