STATE BOOK AWARD LISTS
More fun stuff. Thanks to Cindy Lord I just learned that BLUE is on another state Children's Book Award list for 2008-2009. This time it's Arkansas and the award itself is called The Charlie May Simon Children's Book Award.
It's also on the book award lists for these two southern states.
Do you recognize them by shape?
All the above are for 2008 and 2009 so voting is a year away. The important thing is that during the next year children in those states will be reading BLUE.
And here in North Carolina they've been reading it too.
As a matter of fact voting is going on right now by students at public and school libraries across the state. The polls close on March 31. Announcement of the winner will be in April.
