Congratulations to the 2012 Monarch and Bluestem Winners!

Young readers’ choice awards give kids an opportunity to vote for their favorite books. The kids in Illinois have selected the winners of the 2012 Monarch Award (Grades K-3) and Bluestem Award (Grades 3-5). My students think their fellow Illinoisans did a fine, fine job because the same books won in our library. Congratulations to the winners and nominees.
