Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Bank Street Book List

I think finding your book on this particular list would be a tremendous honor. I've known some of the folks who pick these titles and know how hard they work at it and how discriminating they are. So congrats to all of the writers who made the grade. This is a terrific tool for school librarians, parents, anybody who buys kids' books= a list divided by ages and by genres. Here's how the website describes the book:

One of the most comprehensive annotated book lists for children, aged infant-14. The Committee reviews over 6000 titles each year for accuracy and literary quality and considers their emotional impact on children. It chooses the best 600 books, both fiction and nonfiction, which it lists according to age and category.
