Black-eyed Susan Book Award

What is the Black-Eyed Susan Book Award program? The Black-eyed Susan book award program was created to promote reading and literacy for Maryland children. The award honors outstanding books chosen by students in Maryland. Awards are given for books in four categories: picture book, grades 4-6, grades 6-9, and high school.

What does this mean to me? Each year, soon after the new year, our school libraries start promoting the book program. This year is no different and children from Lulu's school who read 6 or more books will be awarded... an invitation to an ever-popular ice cream social. Gee, the hoops that one will jump through for a scoop of ice cream with some toppings.

Lulu wants that ice cream social invite, of course, and has vowed to read her six books. You can chart her progress on the sidebar of this blog. Is anyone else reading books from this year's list of nominees? Wish us luck.
