It's October 1st and that means two exciting book events are starting now/soon: Cybils Awards Nominations are open today and the Global Read Aloud begins October 6th! The Cybils Awards are always exciting, but I'm even more excited this year because I am a Round 2 Middle Grade Fiction Judge. I can't wait to see what the nominees will be! The Global Read Aloud is extremely exciting this year, also, because The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo, one of the choices of #GRA14, is one of my all-time favorite read alouds. In honor of this choice, I'm re-blogging a post I wrote for Nerdy Book Club in 2012:
Now - go vote for your favorite children's books in all categories at the Cybils Awards site and sign up for one of four fabulous books to read aloud or an author study (Peter H. Reynolds) October 6th - November 14th and connect with other educators and classes at Global Read Aloud!
