Bridge to Reading Books
The Bridge to Reading Picture Book Award, sponsored by the Youth Services Subdivision of the Iowa Library Association, promotes early literacy and reading by introducing children to quality picture books.
Book kits including past and present book award nominees have recently been added to the PLAEA Lending Library. Children who have read or listened to five books from this year's list are eligible to vote (an adult may fill out the ballot), and voting just started this week. See the current list of books here.
