Thank you to everyone who voted for this year’s Children’s History Book Prize! The polls are now closed. It was great for us to learn who of you were taken with Cindy (aka Zomorod’s) life in Southern California during the Iran hostage crisis, or with Grace’s daring escape from slavery, or Annabelle’s struggle against the ultimate bully, or the real life exploits of Nellie Bly. Don’t get these references? Even though voting is over, you can still pick up a copy of all four of this year’s finalists and get to reading!
We’ll be announcing the winner of the book prize very soon, so stay tuned! One thing we can announce now: The winning author will be our special guest at our next meeting of the Reading into History Family Book Club. Mark your calendars for May 21!
