Need a good book to read this weekend?
In honor of the teachers being nominated for the Illinois and South Carolina Book Flood program, which is still open, we are sharing two book lists for kids. (Book Flood Nominations are found at: www.wearecreed.org/book-flood/.)
The first is the Rebecca Caudill Young Readers’ Book Award list. As a prominent children’s book author in the great state of Illinois, Caudill’s Award allows children in 4th grade through 8th grade in Illinois are able to vote on their favorite book from this list.
The second list is from the South Carolina Association of School Librarians. Their book list is broken down by age group so the SC Junior Book Award, for example, is chosen by students in middle school.
Several of these books are found on both lists and we’d love to hear your recommendations!
