A Blue Ribbon Book Club
This is the THIRD TIME I have attempted to make this blog post. Technology has not been my friend. But, as they say, third time's a charm!
Fourteen of us pulled ourselves away from the pre-LSU vs UA mania to discover some amazing award-winning books at Reader's Studio: Blue Ribbon Books on Monday, January 9, 2012. We were introduced to big-eared mice, regurgitating wolves, and even flying frogs.
Emily & Maddie - The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (Caldecott Medal)
Ethan - To the Top of the World: Adventures with Arctic Wolves by Jim Brandenburg (Orbis Pictus Honor)
Grace - Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann (Caldecott Medal)
Juliana - The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo (Newbery Medal)
Mark - Flotsam by David Wiesner (Caldecott Medal)
Sophia - Ramona and Her Father by Beverly Cleary (Newbery Honor)
We also created our own book awards. Check out the pics to see what you've been missing! Then call 444-7833 to register for our next Reader's Studio, a super-cool book club for grades 2-5. We will delve into Fractured Fairy Tales on Monday, February 13, 2012 at 6:30 p.m.
