Best Books of 2013: Beginner Chapter Book

bink-and-gollie-best-friends-foreverFavorite Beginner Chapter Book: Bink and Gollie, Best Friends Forever by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee

Bink is full of fun and energy and go-go-GO.  Gollie is more reserved, yet just as imaginative.  Together, they are true BFF’s, and this adventure – their third – is one that all young readers (and their parents) will enjoy.  The three short chapters, full of rich vocabulary and brilliant color illustrations (thanks to Tony Fucile), make this a hit with J-girl, my boy H, and the 1st and 2nd graders at school.  My family loved DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson series, which ended all too early.  Finding another series that is imaginative, engaging, and accessible is a big win.

Share with ages 4-8.
