A small correction: _Bread and Roses Too_ is by Katherine Paterson.


From a Buffy-loving librarian.

Correction made.

Mother Reader had this comment: "If I may be so bold as o make suggestions from thislist, I think you'd enjoy Shug and Happy Kid! for their on-the-verge of YA feel (they're actually cataloged as YA in my library). I'd recommend Yellow Star, Rules, and Weedflower because I would use them
with middle school kids as well as older elementary - and I think you'd like them. I highly recommend
Clementine and Toys Go Out to read to Queen Lucy."

My TBR pile is so out of control that it's the basis for a horror movie; so the recommendations for me are going on my "get them in January when things cool down" folder. Clementine & Toys have been ordered for the Queen.
