As if the recent news of more shenanigans to come from Shark and Train wasn't enough, more excitement keeps pouring in for these two and author Chris Barton. The latest? Shark Vs. Train is one of five finalists for Kindergarten to Second Grade Book of the Year in the Children's Choice Book Awards!
The Children's Choice Book Awards, sponsored by the Children's Book Council in association with Every Child a Reader, are the only national children's book award program where the winning titles are selected by young readers of all ages. Children can cast their vote through April 29 at bookstores, school libraries, and online. Over 16,000 young people's selections in the IRA-CBC Children's Choices program led to the list of 30 finalists in six categories. Winners will be announced live at the annual Children's Book Choice Awards Gala on May 2nd as part of Children's Book Week, the oldest national literacy event in the U.S.
Huge, huge congratulations, Chris!
