“1000 Books Before Kindergarten” is a nation-wide challenge to parents, designed to help children learn to love books and gain skills for kindergarten readiness.
On August 1, 2017, we began using the New York Times Bestseller Lists for both Middle School and Picture Books for the younger children. The Middle School books are housed on the west wall directly west of the circulation desk. The New York Times list for Middle School is posted on the shelf beside the books.
This list is available online during the week before it is published in the paper.
Here are the books for children that we have this week from the New York Times Bestseller List for Middle School which will be published on Sunday, 08/04/2019 and was posted here on 08-02-2019.
