Are you reading the Rebecca Caudill Award nominees? Not sure what that is?
The Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award is an Illinois award for outstanding literature for young people and is sponsored by the Illinois Reading Council, the Illinois School Library Media Association, and the Illinois Association of Teachers of English.
Each year, twenty books are nominated by children in grades 4-8. Children then read the books and vote for their favorite. The winner is announced in March.
This year's nominees are listed here, or you can see a great video introduction to the list here!
