During December customers visiting the Children's Library were invited to read five books and choose their favorite to be named Best Beginning Reader of the Year! Their voices were heard and we are happy to announce that Dance! Dance! Underpants! by Bob Shea won by two votes!
Readers found it to be a page-turning and engaging story, one of several things to keep in mind when choosing books for new readers.
The other titles on the ballot were:
- Get a Hit, Mo! by David A. Adler, illus. by Sam Ricks.
- Up by Joe Cepeda
- Pug by Ethan Long
- Go, Otto, Go! by David Milgrim
