Massachusetts Children’s Book Awards

The Massachusetts Children’s Book Awards (MCBA) “encourages children in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades to read great books. Students are given a list of book titles. Children in grades 4, 5, and 6 are eligible to vote on a winning book if they have read, or have heard read aloud, at least five of the books from the list” (Everything MCBA!).

Thanks to Proctor School’s tireless promotion, these are very popular books! Ask your child if they are reading any of the MCBA selections.
