Ice Cream Party!
Congratulations to this small, but dedicated group of Sunshine State Young Reader Award readers, who read at least 5 of this year's award winning titles. The consensus was, The Wild Robot was the favorite book for students in grades 3-5. This mirrored the state results as well. Next year's lists are already posted on this site, on the Award Winning Books page. A little summer reading will put you ahead for next year. Happy reading!
Voting for the favorite Sunshine State Young Reader Award book has closed. Students from across the state in grades 3-5 chose The Wild Robot by Peter Brown. Students in grades 6-8 chose The War that Saved my Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley as their favorite. The new list for next year is posted on the Award Winning Books page. Get started this summer!
4th-6th graders, get ready for some T.O.A.S.T.!
Author James Ponti will be visiting Wadsworth on Friday, Feb. 23rd to spread the gospel of T.O.A.S.T. (Theory of All Small Things) as he introduces you to his latest sleuth, Florian Bates, a 12- year-old boy, sought by the FBI for his uncanny ability to observe small things and solve mysteries. Ponti might also throw in a zombie or two! Be prepared for an hour of humor and insight into the life of the illustrious James Ponti. Following each presentation, he will hang around to sign copies of his books for students. Purchase either Dead City or Vanished from the book fair on Thursday, Feb. 22. This will be an event you will never forget!
