Pick a Circle, Gather Squares is a 2015-2016 Goldfinch Award Nominee!

2015-2016 Goldfinch Award Nominess

As I continue to work on updating my website, I’m delighted to share a bit of good news. Pick a Circle, Gather Squares: A Fall Harvest of Shapes  is among the books nominated for the 2015-2016 Goldfinch Award.

Books chosen for the Iowa Association of School Librarians Goldfinch Award are fiction or nonfiction books written within the last five years that cover a range of topics and reading levels appropriate for children in grades preschool through three. According to the website:

The purposes of the Goldfinch Award are: to encourage children to read more and better books.

  • to discriminate in choosing worthwhile books.
  • to provide an avenue for positive dialogue between teacher, parent, and children about books and authors.
  • to give recognition to those who write books for children.

The award is unique in that it gives children an opportunity to choose the book to receive the award and to suggest books for the yearly reading list.

I’m thrilled and honored that Pick a Circle is among this coming year’s list!
