Need a Great Book? Try an Award Winner!

If you are looking for a great Independent Reading Book at the CEMS LLC, here are two places you might look:

1. Newbery Medals & Honors

The Newbery Medal and Honors have been given every year since 1922 to honor “the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.”

Click here to check out the list of medalists and honorees.  Look for the “John Newbery Award” spine label and/or the gold or silver medal on the cover.

2. Maine Student Book Award

You may also want to take a look at the Maine Student Book Award website for other great titles.  That list is available HERE and we have a big display of them right inside the front door.  You can also scan the QR codes you see on the Digital Picture Frames to learn more about the MSBA titles.
