Georgia Book Award Nominees Announced for 2014-2015

The 2014-2015 Georgia Children's Picture Storybook Book Award nominee list is here- the list even correlates with curriculum!

Check out the complete list, and read some great nominees so you may send in your vote next year.

(BONUS: Activity Kit for Mr. Tiger is here)

I use Follett Titlewave to order the complete list each Spring.  I also add the titles to our Summer Reading list so my students will read enough to qualify to vote next year!
(Coming soon- I'll post the Book Nominee list for grades 4-8 and ages 10/11 up!)
