2009-2010 Reader's Awards

Do you remember reading the Mark Twain Award nominees in elementary school? Those awards still exist along with several others to cover most grade levels. In April MASL (Missouri Association of School Librarians) announced the winners of the 2009-2010 readers awards for the state of Missouri. Here are the results for the Middle School Truman Award with the other awards included below. Many of these would make great summer reads.
