This year our 3rd graders took up the charge and, after reading and evaluating selections from over 30 outstanding picture books published in 2014, named this year's recipient of the Golden Owl Book Award and five honor books. As you'll see below, the medal for this year's award was designed by a 3rd grader and now adorns six very worthy books.
