A Friendship for TodayEach year, Missouri students in fourth through sixth grades vote for their favorite book from a list of nominated books to honor one with the title of the Mark Twain Readers Award.

(Students, teachers, librarians and parents can recommend books for the award). The participating students are eligible to vote for their favorite book if they have read at least four of the titles on the current master list. Then the Mark Twain Readers Award is given to the author of the winning book by the Missouri Association of School Librarians (MASL).

Nominated for 2009-2010 is New Links to New Learning author Patricia McKissack, for her 2007 book, A Friendship For Today (Scholastic Press). According to MASL, the purpose of the Mark Twain Award is to provide children of Missouri with a recommended reading list of literature that will enrich their lives.”

Congrats to Pat for being nominated! Voting ends in March 2010.
