"The Geisel Award is given annually to the author(s) and illustrator(s) of the most distinguished American book for beginning readers published in English in the United States during the preceding year." -- From the Geisel Award Home Page of ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children)
First grade students at our school chose Sun Flower Lion by Kevin Henkes for our Mock Geisel Winner this year.
Swim, Mo, Swim! by David Adler illustrated by Sam Ricks, The Old Truck by Jarett Pumprey & Jerome Pumphrey, and Astrid & Apollo and the Happy New Year by VT Bidania illustrated by Dara Lashia Lee, were our Mock Geisel honor books.
Mrs. Brunelle and fourth and fifth grade students manage this blog. We are crazy about books!
