It's time for the 2020 list of the most amazing books (in my opinion), which appeared here on Bookworm for Kids this year. But first... a few statistics.
Don't moan. It's not that bad. You might even find it quite interesting!
I had 272 last year, so that means an up-kick of about 10%. Phew!
Contemporary: 26 (this was also higher than last year...mostly in the middle grade category)
Historical: 11 (remained the same)
Mystery: 17 (tripled on this end)
Romance: 3 (same)
Non-Fiction: 19 (doubled this one, too)
But enough for numbers! What were my favorite reads?
I reviewed this one in May and found the way 'friendship' is described so priceless! Ask your kid the name of their new best friend (when they meet one at the playground, pool or where ever) and pay attention to their answer.
