The Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award
September 01, 2010
Here is a wonderful way to find some new, and different books to read to your children. Each year, a group of Missouri children’s librarians get together and select ten books to share with our customers. These nominees have been selected for a variety of reasons, including introducing children to diverse themes, cultures, and topics. Personally, I always find them to be great read alouds. They are written by a variety of authors, and illustrators of children’s books, including Missouri authors, illustrators, and themes, when possible. Not only do they contain great artwork, but they are written to encourage language development and pre-reading skills.
After reading at least five of the ten titles, the children are then encouraged to “Vote” for their favorite nominee. Voting begins September 1st through December 31st .
