The Beverly Cleary Children’s Choice Award (BCCCA) is named in honor of beloved Oregon born author, Beverly Cleary. Now in our 15th year, we want school library folks, classroom teachers, and public librarians to encourage children to participate in this contest!  To be eligible to vote for their favorite BCCCA nominee, students need to have read (or listened to) at least TWO of the nominated 2016-17 BCCCA titles. Each reader is entitled to ONE vote.

   [cid:image009.jpg at 01D1948E.1D6B8E70]   Archie Takes Flight by Wendy Mass. AR 4.0
It's not every day a regular kid like Archie gets to wake up at midnight. But today is Take Your Kid to Work Day, and Archie is finally allowed to ride along in his dad's taxi cab. He has been waiting eight years, eight months, and eight days for this moment to arrive. But he's about to discover his dad is no ordinary cab driver...In fact, he drives an intergalactic space taxi! All night long, he shuttles aliens from one corner of the universe to another. And being a space taxi copilot is no easy task: Archie must steer them into wormholes, keep them from crashing into planets, deal with a very unusual cat...and save the universe from an evil mastermind!
   [cid:image011.jpg at 01D1948E.1D6B8E70]  Creature Features: 25 Animals Explain Why They Look the Way They Do by Steve Jenkins. AR 3.6
Let's face it. Even as babies, we humans pay close attention to faces. Observing another person's features and expressions tells us whether they are happy, angry, excited, or sad. And when we look at an animal, it's hard not to imagine that its face is communicating human feelings. This isn't true, of course. Squinty eyes, an upturned mouth, or another odd expression is probably there because, in some way, it helps that animal survive.   Packed with many cool facts and visuals on where certain animals live and what they eat, this book captures twenty-five humorous—and very true—explanations of why animals look the way they do in order to exist in this world.
   [cid:image019.jpg at 01D1948E.1D6B8E70]   Jelly Bean by Cynthia Lord. AR 3.6
Suzannah's always wanted a pet of her own, but she lives in an apartment where there are absolutely no pets allowed. What she CAN do is volunteer at a local pet shelter. There, although she's the youngest, Suzannah quickly finds herself making friends with the kids and bonding with the animals. She makes toys and treats for the animals. She feeds the cats and plays with the puppies! Then a girl just her age brings a guinea pig named Jelly Bean to the shelter. Suzannah promises that she'll find the little creature the perfect home. But what if no one wants an abandoned guinea pig?

[cid:image020.jpg at 01D1948E.1D6B8E70]Lulu and the Rabbit Next Door by Hilary McKay. AR 3.7

When Lulu’s next door neighbor doesn’t seem to be looking after his rabbit properly, Lulu and her cousin Mellie devise a scheme to make him pay more attention to his pet.

    [cid:image021.jpg at 01D1948E.1D6B8E70]   Quinny & Hopper by Adriana Brad Schanen. AR   4.0

Quinny has a lot to say. Hopper gets to the point. Quinny has one speed: very, very, extra-very fast. Hopper proceeds with caution. Quinny has big ideas. Hopper has smart solutions. Quinny and Hopper couldn't be more different. They are an unstoppable team. But when summer ends, things suddenly aren't the same. Can Quinny and Hopper stick together in the face of stylish bullies, a killer chicken, and the brand-new Third Grade Rules-especially the one that says they aren't allowed to be friends anymore

    [cid:image022.jpg at 01D1948E.1D6B8E70]   Skateboard Party by Karen English. AR 4.7

 Richard can't wait to show off his flat-ground Ollies at a friend's birthday party at the skate park, but a note home from his teacher threatens to ruin his plans. He really meant to finish his assignment on howler monkeys, but he just got . . . distracted. If only he could focus on his schoolwork, he wouldn't get into this kind of trouble! Can Richard manage to put off getting the note signed (and facing the consequences) until after the party, or will the deception make things even worse?

Thank you to everyone for promoting the BCCCA program!
