The Ultimate Backseat Bookshelf: 100 Must-Reads For Kids 9-14 As we enter the last stretch of summer before school starts again, we present our big annual book list — and this year, we're focusing on great reads for kids. Back in June, NPR's Backseat Book Club — our book club for young readers — asked you, the NPR audience, to nominate your favorite books for kids age 9-14. More than 2,000 of you replied, giving us hundreds and hundreds of titles to consider. So we turned to our expert panel (read more about them — and their Newbery honors! — here), who combined audience favorites with their own choices to come up with a curated list of 100 must-reads. The final 100 has a little bit of everything: tales of trying to fit in, escaping to magical lands, facing prejudice, coming of age and fighting to survive. So if you're looking for a new book for the young readers in your life — or you want to relive that age yourself — please stick around and browse our bookshelf.

The Printable Princess: Back to School Games for Kindergarten In my last post I mentioned that we recently bought a house and were getting settled. We have been unpacking boxes from storage and finding things we completely forgot we had. It has been like Christmas in July around here! We are enjoying Wisconsin so much! We also took our daughter to her first baseball game. While I was unpacking boxes I found some bus cut-outs that I bought at Dollar Tree awhile back. I'm calling this one "Bears on a Bus". And of course I had to make a recording sheet! This is another activity that I make at the beginning of the year. I use the die cut machine to make cut outs of different shapes. I just finished my latest packet in the It's All Fun and Games series. In this activity, the kids are practicing their first name. In this activity students are matching the lowercase letters to the uppercase letters. For this activity, "Colorful Letters", students say the name of the letter on the card. For this activity, students count each color of fish on the mat.
