Top 100 Children's Novels - How Many Have You Read?




Do you have a New Year’s Resolution to read more books? I do! To help me complete this, I have challenged myself to read every book on the School Library Journal’s List of Top 100 Children’s Novels! I’m excited about enriching my knowledge of our library’s children’s collection by reading these fantastic stories.
