Well, this is pretty neat: Every couple of years, the American Library Association and the Children’s Book Council offer Reading Beyond recommendations for kids reading above their grade level, and the just-announced Reading Beyond list for 2020-21 includes two of my titles.
Whoosh! Lonnie Johnson’s Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions (illustrated by Don Tate and published by Charlesbridge) is on the 2020-21 Reading Beyond Book List for Children in Grades K-1 Reading at a 3rd Grade Level.
What Do You Do with a Voice Like That? The Story of Extraordinary Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (illustrated by Ekua Holmes and published by Beach Lane Books/Simon & Schuster) is on the 2020-21 Reading Beyond Book List for Children in Grades 2-3 Reading at a 5rd Grade Level.
Thank you, ALA and CBC!
