I think you are right on these Jamie.

And I think you can safely scan them.

Reading a book is like rewriting it for yourself. You bring to a novel, 
anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and 
you read it in your own terms. -Angela Carter, novelist and journalist

  Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Children's bestsellers this week

  It's Saturday again so it's time for new Best Sellers. These are the top 5 
children's at a glance:
  Children's Books
  Top 5 at a Glance
  1. LEGO STAR WARS, by Simon Beecroft
  2. WADDLE!, written and illustrated by Rufus Butler Seder
  3. SKIPPYJON JONES, LOST IN SPICE, written and illustrated by Judy Schachner
  4. GALLOP!, written and illustrated by Rufus Butler Seder
  5. THE LION AND THE MOUSE, by Jerry Pinkney

  I have already put a hold on Lego Star Wars. I have Waddle and Gallop here at 
home. I did Skippyjon Jones Lost in Spice earlier this week. I'm pretty sure 
The Lion and the Mouse was already in the collection.

  The rest of the children's bestsellers this week are:
Mortenson and Susan L. Roth. (Dial, $16.99.) A school grows in Pakistan. (Ages 
4 to 8) 43 
  7 THE LITTLE PRINCE, written and illustrated by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. 
(HMH, $35.) A pop-up edition. (Ages 9 to 12) 4 
  8 NUBS, by Brian Dennis, Mary Nethery and Kirby Larson. (Little, Brown Books 
for Young Readers, $17.99.) A wild dog in Iraq makes a friend for life. (Ages 4 
to 8) 10 
  9 OTIS, written and illustrated by Loren Long. (Philomel, $17.99.) A frisky 
tractor befriends a calf. (Ages 4 to 8) 9 
  10 14 COWS FOR AMERICA, by Carmen Agra Deedy with Wilson Kimeli Naiyomah. 
Illustrated by Thomas Gonzalez. (Peachtree, $17.95.) Masai villagers in Kenya 
seek to comfort Americans after 9/11. (Ages 6 to 10) 

  I don't think Listen to the Wind is in the collection based on the author 
search and I can get this book.

  It looks like The Little Prince is in the collection but probably not the pop 
up edition, but I doubt the text is different.

  I think from last week I decided Nubs was in the collection, and I did Otis 
last week.

  I actually got no results when I put "Cows for America" into the search box 
so I searched for Deedy which was a hopeless search, too many results.  Under 
browse authors I couldn't find a Deedy so I'm going to assume that's not in the 
collection so I'll try to get that from the library.
