The Trumpet of the Swan. Since July 11th is E.B. White’s birthday, how fun it would be to gather the kids around and celebrate the day with a great read-aloud story. If not, one of E.B. White’s classic tales, perhaps one of the new books that received the
E.B. White Read-Aloud Award.
This award was established in 2004 and has since expanded to include both picture books and books for older readers.
The Curious Garden by Peter Brown is the 2010 picture book award winner and The Brilliant Fall Of Gianna Z. by Kate Messner is the book award for older readers.
The 2009 read aloud awards went to A Visitor For Bear
by Bonny Becker (picture book)
and for older readers, Masterpiece by Elise Broach.
