California Young Reader Medal Award - Tony's Pages

Livingston H.S. Teacher Librarian Tony Doyle has updated his California Young Reader Medal web site. He is sure it is the only place on the web where you can see all nominees and winners from every year of the program. He welcomes interesting stories about CYRM and encourages submissions for inclusion on the Testimonials and Anecdotes page.

Tony's site is particularly welcome at this time of year, when many California schools and students are learning about the program, considering participating, or already actively engaged. The deadline for voting is April 1, 2009.

Here is some background:
This is an all-volunteer run program, so special thanks and cheers go to the many state and local planners, organizers, and readers. I first learned about the California Young Reader Medal Award when my family moved to California, our children began school, and I started hunting for good childrens' stories to read. Read on at Tony's pages to learn which books are nominated for each of five categories for 2009/2010. Enjoy.
