I decided I want to start a Kidlitosphere meme. Even if I don’t get anyone else to do it, this will be a fun thing to do for myself.
At my new job in the Office for Children, Provider Services, I was asked to use my Children’s Librarian experience and put together some suggested book lists for my team of Child Care Specialists — they work with Home Day Care Providers to give them tips and ideas about caring for children.
Well, needless to say, I loved that assignment. I made several “Sondy’s Selections” lists of ten books that I would choose for several different age groups. I’m proud of the lists — they have a nice mix of old classic titles and brand new books.
I decided I should definitely share the lists on my website. Then I got to thinking that it would be fun to find out what books other people will choose.
So, here’s my plan: Beginning next Tuesday, I’m going to post a blog entry where I list my top ten choices of books in a certain category. For anyone who wants to participate, you can post a link to your blog in the comments for that entry. I’m going to warn you of what category will happen next, so you can think about it ahead of time. At first, the categories will be based on age levels, but after I finish these lists for younger children that I’ve already written, I think I can come up with some fun, more off-the-wall categories. (And suggestions are welcome!)
So, next Tuesday, on October 12, 2010, I will post an entry of Sondy’s Selections for children from birth to two years old. This will be a list of the Top Ten books I would pick if I were starting a child care business with babies from zero to two years old. This will be a personal list, with my own preferences — that’s why I’d enjoy seeing lists from other people.
See you on Top Ten Tuesday for Baby Books!
