Rhode Island Children's Book Award

Voting for the Rhode Island Children's Book Award 2015 is a mere 6 months away!  I hope you've all been reading the books since the list was published in March.  As a reminder to read these excellent books so that you'll be ready to vote next year, I'll be featuring 4 titles each month, September - January.  See our special RICBA display in the library and check out one of these books today!

Athlete vs. Mathlete by W.C. Mack

When their two worlds collide in seventh grade, fraternal twins and opposites Owen and Russell find themselves in direct competition at school, on the court, and at home.

The Blessing Cup by Patricia Polacco

A single china cup from a tea set left behind when Jews were forced to leave Russia helps hold a family together through generations of living in America, reminding them of the most important things in life.

The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis

With love and determination befitting the "world's greatest family," twelve-year-old Deza Malone, her older brother Jimmie, and their parents endure tough times in Gary, Indiana, and later Flint, Michigan during the Great Depression.

Wild Born by Brandon Mull

As a dark force engulfs the land, the fate of Erdas has fallen on the shoulders of four young strangers who each have forged a rare bond with their spirit beasts -- a bond that gives great powers to all of them.
