Horn Book Fanfare: Best Books of 2008

Here are more suggestions for those of you planning to buy children’s books for the holidays: The editors of the Horn Book Magazine have announced their selections for the best children’s and young adult books of 2008. Click here to see all the books that were chosen for this year’s Horn Book Fanfare.


I’ve bought a batch of picture books for a six-year-old lady I know named Megan. I’ve already given her several of the Christmas-themed books so she could enjoy them before the holiday arrives. She loves all the books she’s gotten. She especially likes the illustrations in Marla Frazee's Santa Claus, The World's Number One Toy Expert--which happens to be one of my favorite picture books!
Here are the holiday books I've given to Megan to date:

Thanks for the Horn Book list. I need to go find some of those, but I'm happy to see some of my favorites there, too. A good reminder to get the new Margo Lanagan book, too.
