Little Dog Lost is the winner of the 2013 Ladybug Picture Book Award!
*dances, jumps and twirls around the room*
According to the Center for the Book at the New Hampshire State Library, "The Ladybug Picture Book Award is designed to promote early literacy and honor the best in recent children's picture books. A committee of children's librarians from around the state selects 10 picture book titles early in the year. Then, during November, New Hampshire children from preschoolers to those in third grade choose the award winner."
How cool is that? Honestly, I was so honored just to be nominated this year. Winning the award is just the best Christmas present ever!
A HUGE thank you to all children's librarians, teachers and children who read and shared Baltic's amazing tale!
