This fall the new librarian at PES, Nicole Murray, invited Lisa B. and Aimee to collaborate on virtually presenting the 2020 Ladybug Picture Book Award Nominees to students at PES!

Lisa B, Aimee, and Nicole worked together to record a read aloud version of each of the 10 nominated books! Check out the list of this year’s nominees – all available at PTL and follow the link to watch the recordings of each storybook! Students will have a chance to vote for their favorite book at PES, but we thought you would enjoy the read alouds too!

Here is some more information about the Ladybug Picture Book Award:

The Ladybug Picture Book Award is designed to promote early literacy and honor the best in recent children’s picture books. A committee of children’s librarians from around the state selects 10 picture book titles each spring. Then, during November, New Hampshire children from preschoolers to those in third grade choose the award winner. The winning picture book is announced at the end of the year.

To be considered for nomination, a picture book must meet the following criteria:

  • be published, in its current edition, within the last three years
  • be in print
  • have an author and illustrator both residing in the United States
  • possess strong child appeal
  • have artistic quality with text that supports the illustrations
  • not be a title previously nominated
