Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic: Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most.
When I read the topic for this week, I began to look for something else to use, or another meme. I keep mentioning the same books over and over. I didn’t think I could make this week’s topic work for me.
Then, I began to think. My mind began to reel and I thought about my favorite books overall. Then it sunk it: I can step outside the usual genre and mention ANY book that I recommend!
So, for this week, here are the top ten books that I recommend the most!
10. Bubba, the Cowboy Prince by Helen Ketteman – This is my favorite picture book. I’m not big into the entire “Texas only has cowboys!”, but the book makes me feel very warm and very happy when I read it. The art is beautiful, and I love the whole Cinderella mythology from a male POV. If you haven’t read this gem yet, I would recommend getting it, pronto.
9. Mirror, Mirror: A Book of Reversible Verse by Marilyn Singer – My favorite poetry picture book! The format is written in a reverso format (the poem can be reversed to read from top to bottom, or from bottom to top). I LOVE introducing this book in any poetry unit, or discussion.
