Recent Award Winners from Recorded Books

Photobucket One Green Apple, a beginning reader book by Eve Bunting, recently won the Arab American National Museum Book Award. The story of a young Arab girl who goes on a class field trip to the apple orchard on her first day of school in America, it shows students that being different can make life beautiful. The book would be a great Social Studies or Current Events tie-in!Recorded Books also offers other titles from Bunting, including Jumping the Nail and The Summer of Riley.
Photobucket Carl Hiaasen’s Flush was selected for the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award. The book was picked as the winner by children in grades 4-8 for helping to make them “enthusiastic and discriminating readers.” Hiaasen’s stories are praised for their environmental themes, but kids also love them for their humor.Recorded Books also offers Hiaasen’s Hoot.
