SLJ July 2022 cover; The Stars Issue; Illustration by Bob Staake


In SLJ's inaugural Stars Issue, we assembled the full list of starred titles for the first half of the year in a handy edition available to subscribers.  

The cover illustrator is Bob Staake, well known for his New Yorker covers, and many children's books including  Bluebird, I Love Dogs and Look! A Book!. Decorative star designs, each one vibrant and unique, form a rich tapestry representing the starred books of 2022, thus far.
