Book Award 2010: Kid’s Choice Award

2010 is a milestone year for Please Touch Museum’s Annual Book Award:

This year is the Book Award’s 25th Anniversary!

We’ll be celebrating this anniversary through a variety of literacy programming throughout the month, leading up to the announcement of this year’s winners at the Book Award Presentation Ceremony at the museum on Friday, April 23 at Noon.

This year’s Kid’s Choice Award recipient was selected by students at Philadelphia's Overbrook School for the Blind. The book they chose is: How Do You Wokka-Wokka? by Elizabeth Bluemle, illustrated by Randy Cecil. In this book, a multi-ethnic cast of city kids dance, shake, and wokka down the blokka! The rhymes and rhythms in this book are clever and infectious, and the illustrations are vibrant and joyous.

We had a reading of How Do You Wokka-Wokka? in the Story Castle last Friday, which kids highly enjoyed. Special thanks to Overbrook School for the Blind for participating as this year’s Kid’s Choice judges!

Be sure to stay tuned for the Visitor Choice Award Winner to be announced later this week, with a special story time Friday, April 9 in the Story Castle!

We're all about learning through play.
