2017 Rebecca Caudill Nominees!

 

... and the nominees are ... 

Rebecca Caudill was an Illinois librarian.  This prize, given to one book per year, is awarded in her honor.  The books are nominated by school children, read by school children and their teachers, and then voted on by the children. 

This is a partial list of the nominees.  We have all these on our shelves. With one exception ("The President Has Been Shot!), these titles are all available in paperback, so you can buy more than one!
