The Bell Awards were created to celebrate books that support the development of early literacy skills in children. One of our goals for the awards is to be able to use picture books as a way to create some space for professional conversation around early literacy skills and practices.
The Selection Committee periodically posts current nominated titles to the Goodreads group, and they’d love to hear what you think about the titles. What early literacy connections do you see in the books? How do they work in storytime? Your professional opinion matters–to the committee, but also to your colleagues and peers. Head on over!
