Today we announced the winner of the Early Childhood Book of the Year for 2012. Before telling the students who won we gave them the opportunity to vote for the book that they thought deserved to win. The results were very interesting and show that we all have different tastes and opinions when it comes to books ( just as well we have such a great selection of books in our library!).
Here are our grade winners:
The official judges chose The Runaway Hug as the winner of the Early Readers Category. They thought “The lively detailed illustrations and lyrical text work closely together to add humour and pathos.” Our grade one students thought it was simply “a really good story with a happy ending.”
Once we had finished voting and the official winner had been announced we used Strip Designer on the iPads to draw a picture of our favourite shortlisted book.
