Every year kids in grades 3-8 all across Minnesota join together to read some great books and then they vote for their favorite in the Kid's Choice! Maud Hart Lovelace Book Awards.
Maud Hart Lovelace was a Minnesota author who grew up in Mankato, Minnesota. Her Betsy-Tacy books tell of her own childhood in the town she calls "Deep Valley." Minnesota named their Kid's Choice Student Book Award Reading Challenge after Maud Hard Lovelace to honor her and all authors who write for kids.
To participate in this reading challenge, students must read or listen to three or more of the nominated books during the school year. In March, the students vote on their favorite book from the list, and on April 25, the anniversary of Maud's birthday, the winner is announced.
