  1. Will you accept any books from some of these authors? For example Jacqueline Woodson has a number of titles that are very good. Depending on the number of African-American kids in your schools I would think they would appreciate books by authors of color. Angela Johnson is another author whose books could be very popular.

  2. Will you accept other books by some of these authors?

    For example Jacqueline Woodson has a number of titles that are very good, though older. Depending on the number of African-American students you have I would think that they would appreciate books by authors of color. Angela Johnson is another author that I would suggest might be popular. Her books can also be hard to find used however.

  3. Holy crud, Unwind is on the middle school list? That thing scared me half to death in my senior year of HS. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under sixteen.

    On the other hand... I have quite a few of these on my shelves at home. Might have to send you more next time I'm home from college!

  4. waywardcats: I'll ask our media specialists about those books, but if you have some go ahead and send them. Our wish lists are just a starting pont!

    Eika: I'm not familiar with Unwind but it was recommended by a media specialist as being really popular. I'll double-check. And of course we'd love to have your books next time you're home; the Media Mail rate makes it quite affordable to send them. :)
