The children of Missouri have spoken, selecting Bunnies!!! by Kevan Atteberry, as the winner of the 2016 Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award. Over 18,000 preschoolers and kindergartners participated this year, and it’s been a heated battle to the end. In fact, we believe this may have been one of the tightest races in Missouri Building Block Award history! At the final hour, Bunnies!!! snuck past Little Penguin Gets the Hiccups by Tadgh Bentley and Rex Wrecks It! by Ben Clanton.
The Missouri Building Block committee wants to thank all of the teachers, librarians, parents, and caregivers who read to their kids and helped them vote. Your support is what made this such a successful event. For more information about the Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award program, go to our website molib.org/awards/building-block-award.
