The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books:
The Bulletin Dozen


The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles . Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer.

New This January: Four-Hankie Reads

Sometimes the best reading experience is a liquid one, and many young readers are susceptible to the charms of a good cry. There are some famous tearjerkers, but we've concentrated here on more recent books (all recommended in The Bulletin), perhaps even books more famed for other qualities. The titles listed here vary in approach, age level, and sophistication, and they will not all appeal to the same readers. All, however, are of the onion family; kids whose literary encomium is "It was so sad!" will find pleasantly sorrowful prospects here.
