When life gives you lemons, we make #BookFace!
NLC’s #BookFaceFriday is joining forces with Nebraska’s Reading Classic Committee! Reading Classics is a statewide competition that promotes and encourages Nebraska Schools to form teams and recognize outstanding young readers. They just launched a friendly #BookFace competition as students await the new 2019-2020 reading list. “Lemons” by Melissa Savage (Yearling, 2018). It’s one of the 10 nominated titles for the 2019-2020 Golden Sower Chapter Books list!
“Nine year old Lemonade Liberty’s mom taught her that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Lemonade learns how to make lemonade out of rotten lemons. Those lemons come from losing and leaving everything and moving to a small town of Willow Creek, California with a woolly beast lurking in the woods. This is a debut novel packed with humor, mystery, friendship, family secrets and even Bigfoot!” —Cyndi Shinn
The Nebraska Reading Classic Committee chooses books for the reading list for each Division with input from coaches, team members, and many other sources. The list includes award-winning books such as Caldecott, Newbery, Golden Sower, and many other awards. We snapped this week’s #BookFace while members of the committee were discussing titles to add or remove for the 2020 reading list. Specifically the 2019-2020 Golden Sower nominees.
This week’s #BookFace models are committee members, Cyndi Shinn, and Marjorie Brubaker!
