Broad Rock Middle School Library: Rhode Island Children's Book Award 2018

Rhode Island Children's Book Award 2018

In the box below are book summaries and trailers for the 2018 RICBA book nominees. Some of the tabs also have links to the authors' websites and online games. The books will all be available in our school library in the fall but you can check them out from the public library this summer.

The public library may also have ebook versions of the titles. Please ask the librarians at your local library to help you access them. Don't be shy. Answering questions and helping people is what they are there for.

If you are looking to infuse your teaching with a new read-aloud please consider a RI Children's Book Award nominee and check the curriculum related materials available here.

Special thanks to all those on the committee for their work on this.
