The illustrations were done well with much detail. The story shows a fun way to follow a person through a busy schedule. The author takes the reader through a funny approach to solving the problem at the end.

I had the pleasure of being a first read winner of this book and enjoyed it very much. My son saw it more as a silly story, but this is a good lesson for parents to remember to provide a good balance of work and play for their kids.

I was captivated by the illustrations throughout the book. The bright colors and vivid scenes really draw the reader into Ernestine’s crazy life! I loved this book and cannot wait to share it with my preschool class!!

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).
