2016-2017 WCCPBA Nominees!

Hot of the press!

Here are the nominees for the 2016-2017 Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award.

When the list is first released, it’s titles/authors/publishers…which isn’t overly exciting.  Seeing the cover images brings the list to life!

A chunk of Summer 2016 will be spent reading the titles, then choosing a handful to create critical-thinking questions and/or extension learning activities.  So…of the books above, which 2-3 titles would YOU want to have questions/extension activities? Let me know!

    Elizabeth, Queen of the Sea was on our Georgia Children’s Book Award list this past year. It was a fabulous read aloud and kids from kindergarten all the way up to fourth grade loved it!

      That’s great to know! I love seeing nonfiction make nominee lists, and this one looks spectacular. Can’t wait to find ways to extend student thinking with this one (maybe using PebbleGo to research different breeds of seals or locating primary sources about the real Elizabeth??). And hello from a former GA girl (I grew up outside of Atlanta). Happy reading! –arika
