This is a book that I'd like to give every teacher and teacher candidate, as well as libraries and families. It is an opportunity to discover both classic and contemporary titles that are rich in their potential and possibility." Susannah Richards, Professor, Education, Storrs, CT

100 Days, 100 Books is a thoughtful and inspiring compilation of books for young people. Rusty True Browder's summary of each book captures its essence, and will tempt readers of all ages to head to the bookstore or library. This book is meant to be shared. My wife and I have given copies to friends and family -- including educators, librarians and clergy -- and each has requested additional copies. The book's subtitle "Courage and Community in Books for Young People" succinctly describes why this book is perfect for today's world.

What an interesting and useful book Rusty True Browder's 100 Days, 100 Books is! It not only informed me of many of the fine books now available to young people, it brought back favorite memories of my own young reading years. Browder's selections are not what I read in southwestern Kansas in the early 1950s, of course. But the same kinds of fascinating topics were there--histories in the Landmark Series, and biographies and people’s courageous adventures. I could load up my arms at the library and leave that room anticipating hours of pure delight! The books spoke to me: "Here is the best and most interesting of your world. In a corner of dry, wind-swept Kansas, you can see all the corners of the rest." It was magic and miracle rolled into one. It's interesting and fun to imagine the books Browder writes about speaking likewise to young readers today, including (particularly) my own grandchildren. So, thanks to the author for doing all this, making it possible for a septuagenarian grandmother to peek into the reading world of her grandchildren, who live far away in different states. A lot of work for the author, but a lot of good in her work.
