The program is intended to
encourage recreational reading and is sponsored by four organizations that
promote reading and literacy: the California Association of Teachers of
English, the California Library Association, the California Reading
Association, and the California School Library Association. See this year’s
I am reading the picture
books to Grades K-2; the picture books for older readers to grades 3-6. I
have also introduced the intermediate books to grades 4-6; some students are
reading all three novels. When they have heard all the titles, the students
will vote for their favorite book. The winners for the whole of
California will be announced after April 1.
We were lucky to have
Danville author Penny Warner visit our school in January. She gave a very
entertaining presentation. Her books, “The Code Busters Club” series are
very popular in the library.
