The Ones That Got Away

Being a first-round Cybils judge has been an eye-opening experience. Reading a year's worth of easy readers and early chapter books in a concentrated time span proved that cream truly rises to the top. Unfortunately there was more cream than slots on the short list. That meant that some of my favorite chapter books didn't make the final cut. So here are the books I wish could have been shoehorned in, with links to my reviews.


  1. Cute title for your post. Too bad we couldn't have more than 5 Easy Chapter books!

  2. I love hearing what didn't quite make the cut--thanks!
