A Shout Out to the CCBC and their Picture Book List for Older Readers

Every day brings a new question. Monday, it was a request for picture books for older readers, as in middle school age. Well, I knew about Demi, Paul O. Zelinsky's illustrated fairy tales, and Patricia Polacco's stories, but I wanted to provide  a wide field of titles for the reader to choose from to satisfy their request.

This is where the Cooperative Children's Book Center comes in and earns a shout out from a grateful librarian! The CCBC has a myriad of lists to consult and share including the one I needed today: Never Too Old - Picture Books to Share with Older Children and Teens. Compiled by Megan Schliesman and updated annually, this list is organized topically. If you haven't used the CCBC booklists lately, do yourself a favor and see the wealth of resources available to you.
