Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Summer 2007 Book Sense Children's Picks List is now available for preview. Independent bookstores with Book Sense will receive this list with the Children's-specific White Box mailing, currently on its way to stores. The Children's White Boxes, which supplement the current monthly Red and White Box programs, are targeted to more closely meet the needs of booksellers specializing in children's books or general bookstores with active children's sections.

Additional copies of the Summer Kids' Picks list may be requested via e-mail to [email protected].

The list, which is the result of active participation of independent booksellers nationwide, features great titles for babies and preschoolers, young children, and teens.

Looking ahead, the deadline for the August Book Sense Picks nominations is Friday, June 1. Nominations may be sent in an e-mail, including just a few sentences about the title, to [email protected] or via a convenient Web form.

As ABA works to compile a showcase of Book Sense-related images, booksellers are encouraged to send in photos of their displays featuring selections from this Picks list. These images are a great addition to the presentations Book Sense makes to publishers about the program. Photos may be in print or digital format. Digital photos, approximately 3" x 5" and 300 dpi, saved as JPEG or TIFF files, should be e-mailed to Christine Babcock at [email protected]. Multiple pictures may be sent as a stuffed file (.sit). PDF or ZIP files should not be sent, but photos saved on a ZIP disk are acceptable.
