Look at who’s up for an award!

The E.B. White Read Aloud Awards “honor books that reflect the universal read aloud standards that were created by the work of the author E.B. White” They’ve recently added an “older readers” category to reflect that reading aloud is a pleasure at any age. [Full disclosure: I read to Kid until she officially became Teen. Then we got bogged down in Gone With the Wind.]

Picture book nominees
A Visitor for Bear by Bonny Becker, illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton
Louise, The Adventures of a Chicken by Kate DiCamillo, illustrated by Harry Bliss
One by Kathryn Otoshi
Too Many Toys by David Shannon [Full disclosure #2: David sent back a very nice note after I sent him a letter about Kid’s book “No Grandma” which was inspired by “No David.”]

Books for older readers nominees
The Magic Thief by Sarah Prineas [and we know her as sarah_prineas ] “A bookseller favorite which the committee chose because it started “with a bang,” and just kept on going. It was also included for its broad appeal to boys and girls, and to a wide range of ages."
Masterpiece by Elise Broach, illustrated by Kelly Murphy [Full disclosure #3: we share an editor!]
The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry
Zorgamazoo by Robert Paul Weston, illustrated by Victor Rivas [Full disclosure #4: I guess I was the only who thought this sounded too much like a book about interspecies relationships…]
