2016 Georgia Children's Book Award Winners

This year's Georgia Children's Picture Book Award winner is Breaking News: Bear Alert by David Biedrzycki.

My students loved this book!  They enjoyed poring over the illustrations and making connections to other familiar bear stories.  However, our school winner is Carnivores, written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Dan Santat.

This year's Georgia Children's Book Award winner is A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd.

Although A Snicker of Magic has been popular this year, our school winner is Nickel Bay Nick by Dean Pitchford.

I love participating in the Georgia Children's Book Award program!  All students in fourth through sixth grade read at least three of the titles during the school year.  Having a common list of books to read builds a culture of reading in our school.  Students love discussing and debating their favorite titles.  I am always impressed by the rich conversations inspired by these books.
