I am excited to announce the Ottauquechee School’s Red Clover award winner for favorite picture book of 2017! Students K-4 read the books in their classrooms and in the library and then voted on their favorites. It was a very close contest, but the tongue-in-cheek favorite Meet the Dullards by Sara Pennypacker, illustrated by Danny Salmieri, was the winner!
Second place by only four votes went to Winnie: the True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie-the-Pooh by Sally M. Walker, illustrated by Jonathan D. Voss, and third place went to Glamourpuss by Sarah Weeks, illustrated by David Small. All in all, it was a stupendous group of picture books! I can’t wait to hear what the official vote for the entire state of Vermont is, and how it compares to our own tally!
