Time To Choose Your Favorite
September 07, 2010
It’s that time of year again. The older children are off to school, and younger brother or sister wants something to do. How about checking out the Missouri Building Block Award Nominee display starting September 1st. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to read aloud to children from the list of ten titles selected by a group of Missouri librarians. This award is to get young children from birth to kindergarten excited about reading.
After reading at least five of the ten nominees, the parent, caregiver, and child get together, pick their favorite and cast a vote. Pick up your ballot at your local branch. The voting begins in September and ends December 31st.
The nominees for 2010 are:
- I Can Do It Myself by Diane Adams
- The Great Dog Wash by Shellie Braeuner
- Put It On The List by Kristen Darbyshire
- The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen
- The Birthday Pet by Ellen Javernick
