NC Children's Book Award

We're beginning a new lesson series by reading the book nominees for the 2016-17 NC Children's Picture Book Awards.  Listed below our the new titles.   The books have been set up in the library for students to read during their free time and we will also cover these during class time over the next several months.

We will vote in March after the Book Fair.
