Virginia Reader's Choice 2007-2008

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.
Middle School
High School

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!
