Massachusetts Children's Book Award
Our wonderful new children's librarian just email me a link to this year's list of nominated titles and there are some GREAT ones included!
Take a look here or at the official site here. The majority of libraries in the state will be having sign-ups, but even if yours isn't this is a great resource for extremely well written and engaging books!
If you are unaware of the program here is how it works -
Kids in grades 4, 5 & 6 (aprox. 9 - 12 year olds) must read 5 books from this list by March 1st and choose their favorite. Votes will be tallied by local librarians and sent to Salem State College. The winner will be announced on April 3rd!
