This year's Georgia Children's Picture Book Award winner is Sylvie by Jennifer Sattler.
Although Sylvie was very popular at my school, my students chose Clink by Kelly DiPucchio.
This year's Georgia Children's Book Award winner is Wonder by R.J. Palacio.
My students chose A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz.
I just love how our students are so excited about reading the Georgia Children's Book Award nominees. The book award list provides students with suggestions for books to read, many of which they probably would not have otherwise considered reading. The shared reading experience and conversations students have about books promotes literacy throughout the building.
