Summer is maybe the best time of the year for me. While I have more time to spend with friends, it’s always a perfect time to spend some time alone and read. I like to have a book on hand at all times!
Children’s summers are even longer than ours are, and it’s amazing we can do so many activities together with them. But sometimes even the most outdoorsy families likes to have a rest after spending the day at the beach or in the mountains. It’s a perfect time to relax with a good book or a great story.
Here is the short list of the Children’s Book Award for 2016
According to their website, “The Children’s Book Award (known as the Red House Children’s Book Award during the 14 years of The Book People’s sponsorship) is the only national award voted for entirely by children, has been running since 1980.” I’m all for kid judges- and their site says that more than 100,00 votes were cast! These children are members of The Federation of Children’s Book Groups.
I think it takes a kid to know what another kid would like to read :)
Here is a video from the winning author!
