For the past few weeks several classes have been reading some fabulous Canadian picture books. The books were chosen from the nominees for the Marilyn Baillee Picture Book of the Year as well as the Governor General’s Literary Awards nominees. We created criteria to help us decide on what makes a great picture book. Then we read a different book each week and discussed how the book met the criteria for us. Finally we will vote on our favourite.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the winner!
