When I was at the Virginia State Reading Association Conference last week, Perma-Bound was handing out lists of the 2007-2008 nominees for the Virginia Reader's Choice Awards. The books are read in classrooms and libraries across Virginia and students vote on their favorite book. It's always a great list of books, so I anxiously await the list each year and attempt to read most of them.
They are four lists categorized by age:
Primary (Grades K-3)
Elementary (Grades 3-5) ** Yes, Grade 3 is an overlap year--you can pick either list.
Today, I will list the Primary books and links to find the books and their authors. I'll highlight a different list each day.
Bubba and Beau Meet the Relatives by Kathi Appelt
Duck and Goose by Tad Hills
He Came With the Couch by David Slonim
Love and Roast Chicken: A Trickster Tale from the Andes by Barbara Knutson
Mrs. Watson Wants Your Teeth by Alison McGhee
Once Upon a Time, The End: Asleep in 60 Seconds by Geoffrey Kloske
Russell and the Lost Treasure by Rob Scotton
Stan the Dog and the Sneaky Snacks by Scoular Anderson
Terrific by Jon Agee
Three Pebbles and a Song by Eileen Spinelli
These titles all look so intriguing. I can't wait to read them!
