Being from Canada, I have missed reading some of these books so I know what I will be doing this winter! I especially love reading the Newberry Award books and always love the illustrations of Caldecott award books. I would add to this list; 100 dresses which always makes me cry, Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry which also makes me cry, Owls in the Family from Canadian (Yay!) author Farley Mowat, and all the Henry books written by Beverly Cleary. One of my favorite memories is my oldest son when he was around 8 reading to me the antics of Henry and his dog. Ah, the joys of books that open up our understanding, that teach us to empathize with and learn about those different from us, that take us to new places and fill our imagination!
What books would you add?
