The KIDDO Awards are sponsored by ReadKiddoRead.com and honor books that were the best at getting kids turned on to reading. You can visit their voting page and submit your vote in a number of categories:
BEST SERIES OF 2012
In our library, Diary of a Wimpy Kid would win this battle hands down! Is that the book you will vote for? Or are you a fan of the Matched series with its third in the trilogy, Reached?
BEST ADVANCED READ OF 2012
Code Name Verity is the Printz Honor Award winner for this year--will it also win a KIDDO Award?
BEST PAGETURNER OF 2012
The graphic novel Drama is a hot read in our library now, but Wonder is one of the most talked about books, both online and in classrooms and libraries.
BEST BEGINNER READ OF 2012
The One and Only Ivan is the Newbery Winner for this year, and it's a great story!
BEST ILLUSTRATED BOOK OF 2012
Mo Willems and Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs--'nuff said!
