Favorite Show-Me Nominees 
2017 Favorites

I mentioned in a previous post that this year's Show-Me nominees, picture books for Missouri readers in grades 1-3, are FULL of animals! Animal books almost always win, and there are eight of the ten nominees this year which feature animals. Of course I love animals, too, so my favorites fall right in line with the students. These are my two favorite nominees this year: Strongheart by Emily Arnold McCully and Ivan by Katherine Applegate. Interestingly, these two are both also true stories about famous animals. I will be interested to see how the voting comes out and if either of my favorites wins!
