I did not know about these awards, but I’ll go vote with my daughter after school. Very cool stuff.
It’s really fun to vote! I hope your daughter enjoyed it! Some great books on the list.
Ohh! Will have to mention this on the school blog!
To The Brain Lair,
Thanks so much for telling the students at your school. I think it will be fun for them to vote for their favorite books!
Thanks God this books exist. Without them i would left with stupid cartoons…which strangely kids really like..but i dont blame them – they take everything new as right and legit…
I hope you have time to get your kids to vote for their favorite books. My kids loved the idea that their vote counts for a book award! No one asked them before.
