Open Window's Washington Children's Choice Picture Book Award Winner!

Every year our Kindergarten through Third Grade students enjoy voting in the Washington Children's Choice Picture Book Awards. After reading all 20 nominees during library, students have the opportunity to vote for their favorite book. This requires careful deliberation as students weigh the merits of all the ones they like the best.

We have just finished counting up the ballots for our school and we have a winner:

Two Bobbies: A True Story of Hurricane Katrina by Kirby Larson

This book is a moving, true story of friendship, loyalty and kindness in the midst of a huge disaster. The website has more information about the remarkable animals who feature in this tale that touched all our hearts.

Keep an eye on the WCCPBA homepage to find out which book won at the state level!
