Ladybug Picture Book Award

Best Picture Books Voted by Kids

In November 2010, New Hampshire children from preschoolers to third grader will be invited to vote for the winner of the 2010 Ladybug Picture Book Award. Voting materials, including a picture ballot and tally sheets will be available on this website in June.  What an exciting way to teach very young children about great picture books AND that your opinion makes a difference.  I wish I lived in New Hampshire so my kids could vote!!!
