2020 Magnolia Book Awards
Now Playing: Book Winners are announced!
Topic: Books

The Magnolia Book Awards are officially announced.

How did this happen?

What are the Magnolia Awards?

First, many books are sent to librarians on this committee from authors and publishers. Then the librarians choose which 10 books they think their reading audience will like the best in each category. Here is the best part... students get to vote and choose which book they like the best.

Check out the winners and then look to see which books students get to vote on next year for the 2021 Magnolia Book Award.

Hurricane Boy
Now Playing: Learning about Life, Weather & Survival
Topic: Books

This story shares what it was like for a family to live through Katrina, one of the worst hurricanes ever in New Orleans.

How do you survive a storm of that magnitude? It is hard to plan for something that you have never gone through before.

The young man in this story grows and learns how to help others and solve problems.

It was so interesting and exciting that I read it in one day!

What should I Read Next?
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: Great website
Topic: Books

This is a great website for students because it is a blog...

...written by a 9 year old. She has written a book called  The Magic Mystery .

She and her Mom presented at the F.B. Kagler Children's Book Festival. 

This young lady has read 72 books this year and written book reports on them.

After she writes the reports, she posts them on her blog.

She does not have screen time Monday through Friday at home and she loves reading and writing.

All the proceeds from her book go to the St. Jude's Hospital.

Here is the link to her blog.
