Virginia Readers Choice Book List
 

During the month of January all of our students will be introduced to the 2013-2014 Virginia’s Readers Choice book titles.

 
The purpose of the Virginia Readers Choice Program is to encourage young readers to become better acquainted with contemporary books with outstanding literary appeal and to broaden students' awareness of literature as a life-long pleasure.

 

All of the Primary books are read aloud to Kindergarten - 5th Grade students as part of library instruction.  All students in the school will vote for their favorite Primary title and those students who have read at least 5 of the 10 Elementary titles can vote for their favorite Elementary book. Results of our school vote are submitted to the Virginia Readers Choice State Committee and the statewide results are announced in late April.

 

 
We will have copies of all of the titles in our library, but copies can also be found at the public libraries, at our Book Fairs, and at all of the local bookstores.
