The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger
is the winner of the 2012
Rhode Island Children's Book Award!
Across the state, 6,954 children voted for their favorite of the 20 nominees, and The Strange Case of Origami Yoda won with 1,213 votes! This was also the book that our Ashaway School students picked as their favorite, so there was a lot of cheering in both classes when I made the announcement!

All fourth graders who read at least 3 of the books nominated for the Rhode Island Children's Book Award got to vote for their favorite! Students -- not adults -- select which book will win the award each year. (To learn more about the award and to see the complete voting results, please visit http://www.ri.net/RIEMA/bookaward.html.) The voting took place during the last week in February.
