Saturday's Sunday Recommendations

BookWorld is running a new column this week, "The Book that Changed Me." In this column, kids explain which book changed their lives and why. First on the list? The Kite Runner. Other choices include:
  • The Revealers, by Doug Wilhelm
  • The Adventures of Tintin, by Herge
  • The Da Vinci Code (sigh. They're infecting the children now)
  • The Boy who Became President, by Dan Gutman

and, of course,

  • Eragon (kids love ths one. You can't talk them out of it.)


Also in the Washington Post, a children's librarian recommends titles for kids who like Captain Underpants (millions and trillions of them, I think). Jane Dorfman suggests Snarf Attack , Underfoodle and the Secret of Life: The Riot Brothers Tell All and Amato's Drooling and Dangerous: The Riot Brothers Return!, by Mary Amato.


Also in the Washington Post: Katie Couric reads with her kids and an interview with Carl Hiaasen.
