Have You Heard the News?

Perhaps you didn't even know that Indiana has its own children's book awards, but this one is just for the littlest residents.

On Friday, the Indiana Center for the Book announced the Winner of the Indiana Early Literacy Firefly Award.

There's a Monster in Your Book
Kids ages 0-5 could vote, with the help of an adult, on the book they enjoyed the most. There were five books on the ballot and this monster book proved the most popular with more than 2,000 votes.

Written by Tom Fletcher and Illustrated by Greg Abbott, this interactive story asks the reader for help getting a pesky monster out of the book. The little blue monster hides, runs, falls and then escapes. What could be more fun than reading and playing at the same time? Besides, this little monster is more cute and mischievous than ugly and sinister.

If you're curious about the other books on the Firefly Award ballot take a look for yourself. There's a lot of fun and learning in these great titles!
