Mrs. Farquharson’s musings about books for children and young adults

The winners are…


The winner and honor books for the 2012 Massachusetts Children’s Book Awards were announced this month. When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead (Wendy Lamb Books, 2009) is the winner of the award this year.

The honor books are Scat by Carl Hiaasen (Knopf, 2009), Cracker! The Best Dog in Vietnam by Cynthia Kadohata (Atheneum, 2007), The Gollywhopper Games by Jody Feldman (Perfection Learning, 2009), and Dying to Meet You (43 Old Cemetery Road) by Kate Klise (Harcourt, 2009).

It was so interesting to learn of the statewide winner and honor books and compare them to the results of the voting by our students at DCD. We had a tie for first place between Scat and Dying to Meet You. Our honor books are When You Reach Me, Cracker!, and The Prince of Fenway Park by Julianna Baggott (Harper Collins, 2009).
