One of the benefits of membership in the Kansas Reading Association is the exposure to top quality picture books through the Bill Martin Jr. Picture Book Awards. The celebrated author of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?; Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom and many others was a leader in the early literacy field. The award named for him honors his work in children’s literature by recognizing outstanding authors/illustrators of children’s picture books.
Now is the time to select the next recipient of the Bill Martin Jr. Picture Book Award. The committee has presented us with an awesome list of books nominated for the award. Many councils have featured the books in their meetings. Voting will be open January 26-February 28, 2016. Each member of the Kansas Reading Association has one vote.
