Makin’ a List, Checking with You

School Library Journal asked me to help out with a list of the ten best transitional reader books for their annual Best of the Year celebrations in print and online.

So I’ve been paying extra close attention to all 2018 early readers and chapter books, but in the words of Aerosmith, I don’t wanna miss a thing.

Here are the 2018 early readers and chapter books I’ve spotted so far. I’ll keep adding throughout the year. Any others to add to my reading list?
