Posted on August 10, 2014 by CLIPPA Team Award —
So many wonderful children’s books were submitted to the 2014 Children’s Literature Independently Published Principal’s Award (CLIPPA) that even selecting finalists was difficult. Our reading specialists, authors and teachers checked each nominated book against the CLIPPA criteria and then selected the best as finalists to go on to the panel of principals for judging. The finalists are listed below for Categories Grades K-2 and Grades 3-4, including brief descriptions of each book. The books are listed in no particular order. (There are also some honorable mentions listed in each category. While they will not move on to the final judging, the preliminary finalist selection panel wanted them represented as also being wonderful examples of self-published children’s books).
