A quick explanation: Betsy didn’t just run surveys and polls to create a Top 100 list of Picture Books and Children’s Novels. She also created individual posts for each title (those counting along at home realize that number is “a lot of posts”), including the various cover art, reader reactions, original reviews, trivia, etc. Each post is a gem. And now I’ve heard that SLJ is making it easier to enjoy and read through all those posts by producing decorative PDFs for each list.
The PDF can be for your own reading pleasure, for sharing with teachers and parents, for sharing with students. Each will link to Betsy’s extensive blog posts on each of the 100 titles and will include fuller descriptions of the top 10. People can sign up for notification when the PDF is ready (to be released July 23).
