This is going to be so much fun! I can't wait to get started. I'm making my list of what to nominate in each category...

I know! It will be great. I'm very excited, too, Cloudscome.

You should check out Bayard and their series of StoryBoxBooks, AdventureBoxBooks, and DiscoveryBoxBooks.
There's lots going on too:
