The vote in Ohio is important for kids, too. Every year, school kids from all over Ohio get to nominate, then vote on their favorite books of the year. The book with the most votes in each catagory gets a Buckeye Award.
I'm thrilled to report that this year the K-2 kids voted Elephant and Piggie's WE ARE IN A BOOK! as their fave.
There's nothing better than having your real audience enjoy your work.
The winners in older catagories are pals Brian Selznick and Rick Riordan.
Thanks Ohio students for your support!
In other nice news, thanks to you GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE DINOSAURS has popped back onto the bestseller lists for both Indie Bound (#11) and the New York Times (#8)!
Speaking of you, (if you're in Colorado) you can help decide which picture book is the next Colorado One Book 4 All choice right here. Maybe it will be Knuffle Bunny?
