Caterpickles’ Year in Books

Caterpickles’ year in books, as summarized by Goodreads.

I’ve been using Goodreads on a personal basis for years now. Last year, I decided to set up a separate Goodreads page to track the books my daughter and I have reviewed on Caterpickles. They are sorted onto shelves according to the age my daughter was when she read them.

It’s important to note that these are not all of the books my daughter read in any given year. These are merely the ones she asked me to tell you about on Caterpickles.

Still, the next time you’re in the market for a book to share with a child ages 4-10, feel free to pop over to the Caterpickles Goodreads account and see what my daughter was reading at that age and what she thought about it.

A sampling of some of the books The Ten-Year-Old enjoyed this year.

Check it out, and if you’re on Goodreads, befriend us.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at, chatting about books and the writing life at, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
