The End Is Near!

And just in time for ALA too.

Yes, we’re counting down the Top 100 for the next few days.  Each day I’ll show a Top 100 Picture Book Poll result alongside a Top 100 Chapter Book Poll result.  Speculate at will!  There are a few surprises left . . .

About Elizabeth Bird

Elizabeth Bird is currently the Collection Development Manager of the Evanston Public Library system and a former Materials Specialist for New York Public Library. She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she'd love to tell you about but that she's sure you'd find more interesting to hear of in person. Her opinions are her own and do not reflect those of EPL, SLJ, or any of the other acronyms you might be able to name. Follow her on Twitter: @fuseeight.


  1. I know I have the top novel wrapped up. Don’t even try and tell my I’m wrong.

    I’m pretty sure of the picture books, but I’m surprised IN THE NIGHT KITCHEN dropped completely off the list. I know it must have because there is no way ALEXANDER AND NGVBD, or BARK, GEORGE didn’t make it. Right?

  2. I’m glad it’s slowing down — I’m way behind on reading and commenting! Maybe a little lull during ALA? Though I suppose with Baby Bird on the scene, you may not be able to go. I just know I won’t have as many opportunities to read your scintillating posts for the next couple weeks. But will try to catch up before I go….

  3. I didn’t know you were doing this again! I LOVED reading your posts first thing every morning back when you did the first chapter book list. Please, please, please, make a new master list soon so I can catch up!
