The Year in Books: People, Places, and Themes. First Stop: My favorite books about people.

Over the next few posts, I will share my favorite books about people, places and themesThere are many "best of" book posts so how does this one differ? I looked back over the books that I read with students this year and thought about the ones that I most enjoyed reading, the ones that the students connected with, and the ones I just could not stop thinking about. These are the books that helped shape our learning community; grow minds and hearts; and, inspire critical thinking. Oh, and these books are beautifully written, illustrated, and produced. What a year it has been for those of us whose job it is to share literature with children.

Below are my favorite books, in alphabetical order by title, about people.

Coming up next: The Places!
