New Hampshire's Ladybug Picture Book Awards

Students preschool to grade three vote each year for their favorite book from the list of ten books nominated for New Hampshire's Ladybug Picture Book Award. The book with the most student votes wins the award. 

For their next four library classes, students, kindergarten to third grade, will vote to decide which book I will read aloud from the list of nominees. We will discuss opinions of the books as we read them. At the end of the unit, students will vote for their favorite of the books that have been read.

We began the unit by enjoying last year's winner.

2012 Winner:

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin 

The students really seemed to enjoy listening to the book read and sung by the author:
