Show-Me Readers Award
Students in Kindergarten through Third Grade will be participating in the Missouri Show-Me Readers Award, sponsored by the Missouri Association of School Librarians (MASL). Each year, ten picture books are reviewed and chosen by MASL. The purpose of the Show-Me Readers Award is to promote literature, literacy, and reading in Missouri elementary schools and to promote recognition of authors and illustrators of books that are favorites of Missouri children. We will read each Show-Me Readers Award nominee during scheduled library time, and then children will vote on their favorite book. These books are remembered by the children for years and often help develop an early love of reading.
