The Busy Life of Ernestine Buckmeister is the winner of the Comstock Read Aloud Book Award for 2012! The award was announced yesterday afternoon at an elementary school in Fargo, ND, and was read aloud to approximately 100 fourth grade students and their teachers.

The Comstock Read Aloud Book Award is sponsored by the Curriculum Materials Center at Minnesota State University Moorhead. The award is granted to the picture book that is best suited to read aloud to children from the ages of nine to twelve. The evaluation criteria of the book includes: rich vocabulary, memorability, whether the text and illustrations stimulate children to respond in a variety of ways, artistry, and more.

Congratulations  Linda Ravin Lodding and Suzanne Beaky!

By the way, last year, That Cat Can’t Stay, (written by Thad Krasnesky, illustrated by David Parkins), was selected by the Minnesota State University Moorhead as their Wanda Gág Read Aloud Honor Book (for toddlers through 8 year olds).

This is a wonderful book! I too have (in the past) been guilty of packing my son’s schedule pretty tight. He definitely identifies with this book and likes reading it. The Congratulations on the award!
