Dewey Top 100: Recent Elementary Books

With school just a few weeks away, the Dewey Divas and Dudes created this brochure for our school wholesalers listing 100 picks of excellent, recently published children's books. The list is separated into three grade categories - books suitable for K-3, 4-6 and 7-8. We thought this might be of interest also to teachers, public librarians and any readers who have little ones in their lives. If you'd like a copy of the brochure, please e-mail me directly at and I'll e-mail you the PDF (sorry, I'm not techno-savvy enough to figure out how to post it on the blogsite).

Please note that this is by no means a "Best of all children's books list" as of course it only reflects those publishing imprints that the Deweys represent. They do all come with the Dewey seal of approval however - the reps have read and loved them, and these titles were chosen also because they compliment school curriculum. This list reflects books that have all been published in the last two years and all publishing and price information is Canadian. However, if there are any U.S. or International readers out there who would like a copy, I'm happy to e-mail it to you also - just be advised that some of the titles may not yet be available in your country, or they may be published by a different publisher. In Canada, all of these books are available and can be ordered or bought at your regular bookstore, wholesaler or using online sources.
