I'm very excited about this award. I had never heard of it!

I think it's a great idea to honor read-alouds, too, Miss L.

I took out three of these from the library -- perfect timing, as we had just finished a run of Richard Peck books for bedtime reading....

Jody, that is excellent that you could put this list to use. Now y'all can choose your favorite!
