2013 E. B. White Read-Aloud Award Finalists

Opinion:  Every child should experience E.B. White's Charlotte's Web as a read-aloud. (I could argue that this is a fact.)  

Fact: I've been impatiently waiting for the American Booksellers Association to release the 2013 E.B. White Read-Aloud Award finalists. 

Fact: The E.B. White Read-Aloud Award is my favorite book award after the Caldecott and Newbery. 

Fact: The E.B. White Read-Aloud Awards finalists were released last week

Fact: Past winners include Jon Klassen, Tom Angleberger, Kate Messner, and Peter Brown. 

Fact: The winners will be announced on April 18. 

Fact: We should read aloud to our students every day.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Great books all around.

  2. Thank you for sharing! My class has been loving all of your recommendations this year! Already read One and Only Ivan, Wonder, and The False Price so I think we will try either Same Sun Here or The Last Dragonslayer next!
