NPR’s Kids’ Book Club Continues

The recently released Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu is the third pick for the NPR’s monthly Backseat Book Club. The club is aimed at “all those 9- to 14-year-olds who listen to NPR programs while riding in the car or working on homework at the kitchen table.” On the NPR Web site, host Michelle Norris says the book is the perfect selection for this time of year because it “captures the wonder of winter.”

The announcement caused the book to rise on Amazon’s sales rankings to #315, from #3,416.

The second book in the club was a classic from 1961, Norman Juster’s The Phantom Tollbooth (RH/Knopf), illustrated by Jules Feiffer. Juster took young reader’s questions on All Things Considered last night. That book also received a boost, rising to #172 from #1,596 on Amazon’s rankings.
