Red Clover nominees for 2010-2011

It’s Red Clover Book Award time! This is a book award that is voted on by the school children in Vermont. There are 10 nominated picture books from which to choose from. At my school, we have guest readers (people from around the school who are not classroom teachers) come in to each  read a book to each class. It becomes a competition because each guest reader really wants their book to win!

Here are this year’s nominees:

Chicken Little by Ed and Rebecca Emberly
Pennies for Elephants by Lita JudgeBubble
Bubble Trouble by Margaret Mahy
Redwoods by Jason Chin
Lousy Rotten Stinkin’ Grapes by Margie Palatini
An Eye for Color by Margaret Wing
Let’s Do Nothing by Tony Fucile
Button Up! by Alice Schertle
The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau by Dan Yaccarino
Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11 by Brian Floca
So far we’ve heard Redwoods and Chicken Little. I’ve read Lousy Rotten Stiinkin’ Grapes earlier this year and loved it. Have you read any of these picture books? I can’t wait to see which book wins!

  1. So glad to see that you enjoyed LOUSY ROTTEN STINKIN’ GRAPES, Nan! Wish I could have heard you’re rendition!
    What wonderful nominees for this year’s Red Clover Award. I’m proud to be part of such a great group!

  2. I’ve been missing picture books for a while now. My youngest son barely had a picture book stage. He only wants me to read him chapter books so that he can be “reading” the same books as his older brother.

    Maybe I can sneak a couple from this list into my bag on our next trip to the library and entice him to at least look at them.
