Customer Choice Awards: The Winners!
Whoa! Your votes poured in!
We asked you: what are your family’s favorite read alouds from our 2021-2022 programs:
- Dart (8-10)
- Arrow (11-12)
- Boomerang (13-14)
- Slingshot (15-18)?
Every title received votes. All 35 of them!
That means that every single title was at least one family’s favorite! We love that!
The books we select to study are delightful, endearing, and sometimes heartbreaking. In those books, we find the nuggets to inspire Big Juicy Conversations about:
- literary devices
- literary analysis
- and more—hello connections to history, science, culture . . .
While we adore all of the handbooks we produce for you and your kids, we know there are fan favorites.
This year, we wanted to hear from you! And you were ready to tell us!
You’ve cast your votes! We’ve tallied the results!
The winners are . . .
- Dart (ages 8-10): Skunk and Badger
- Arrow (ages 11-12): Amari and the Night Brothers
