There are a lot of end of the year lists going around now. Some of these are best of the year, some are just good gift lists. (See below.) I’m proud to announce that THUNDER-BOOMER! is making some of those lists, including School Library Journal’s Best of the Year, and the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, Guide to Gifts, 2009.

You’ll find a comprehensive list of national, and some international, end of the year lists at CHICKEN SPAGHETTI.
