3 Books that WI Kids Love

Every year students across the state read and vote for their favorite book. The Wisconsin Golden Archer award is given out for the books that our very own kids love. Though nominees are chosen by a committee of library media specialists, the winners are chosen by Wisconsin students by a vote done every spring.

The 2016 winners were announced this week.

At the primary level (grades K-2) the winner was The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak. "In this book with no pictures, the reader has to say every silly word, no matter what".

At the intermediate level (grades 3-5) the winner was Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul by Jeff Kinney. "The Heffley family road trip starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns--with everything from a fender bender to crazed seagulls--but even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure, and this is one the Heffleys will not soon forget."

And at the middle school level (grades 6-8) the winner was Sisters by Raina Telgemeier. "In graphic novel format, Raina Telgemeier shares the story of her relationship with her younger sister."

You can find the 2016 winners and many of the past winners at your school library. The full list of winners can be found at www.wemta.org/programs/goldenarcherwinners.cfm .
