The "Franki" Awards!

Today on the always wonderful A Year of Reading blog, Franki posted a list of books she hopes win awards this season.  I figured hey, if FRANKI says a book should win an award, it just got an award!  Why not call it the "Franki"?  I mean there are about a thousand children's book awards.  Why not 1001?

The Frankis for Illustration go to:

Chalk
A Fabulous Fair Alphabet by Deborah Frasier
City Dog, Country Frog by Mo Willems
All Things Bright and Beautiful by Ashley Bryant
Mama Miti by Donna Jo Napoli
Mirror by Jeannie Baker
Mirror, Mirror by Marilyn Singer
A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Phillip Stead


The Frankis for Writing go to:

Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper
Keeper by Kathi Appelt
Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
A Million Shades of Gray by Cynthia Kadohata
A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park
Touch Blue by Cynthia Lord
As Easy as Falling Off the Face of the Earth by Lynne Rae Perkins
Countdown by Deborah Wiles
The Water Seeker by Kimberly Willis Holt
Penny Dreadful by Laurel Snyder


Congratulations Winners!

Love this idea ... and it must be a real award list because as usual, I've read very few of the winners: A Sick Day for Amos McGee and Penny Dreadful
