       The New York Times posted the top selling children's books from last week. Now selling the most copies or winning an award is no guarantee of a great story -- I just slept through a Newbery Honor Book, which is unusual since I race through so many of them -- but selling rate and honors are places to start a book search:

Pikney's The Lion and the Mouse was the top seller for picture books
Sweet Little Lies (ages 14 and up) by Lauren Conrad for chapter books
Conrad's LA Candy for paperbacks
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan for series.
