Book Awards: Theodor Seuss Geisel Award
ACPL Mock Geisel Program
Grabbing the attention of new readers is a difficult task. Using just a few simple words and illustrations
to create a quality storyline is an enormous challenge. Each January, the American Library Association presents
the (Theodor Seuss) Geisel Award to “the most distinguished American book for beginning readers.”
Past winners make a great starting place for enjoyable books that delight beginning readers. In anticipation
of each year’s Geisel winners, we are always on the look-out for new books that meet the official criteria.
You will find these books posted on the ACPL Kid Blog.
If you have thoughts to share about any of the books or have a title to suggest, please feel free to do so in the
comments field of the blog.
Comments and suggestions can be sent to Mary R. Voors, Manager, Children's Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
