RES Red Clover Winning Book:
Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton

All school year, RES scholars have been sharing the 10 excellent picture books on the 2015-2016 Red Clover Award reading list. Every year the Vermont Center for the Book puts together a new reading list of 10 fiction and nonfiction picture books for this award, which is named after our state flower. Vermont students in kindergarten through fourth grade read, listen to, discuss, and write about the books on the list. Then each student votes for his or her favorite. RES students voted for Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton as their favorite Red Clover book this year!

Other top vote-getters were Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse by Torben Kuhlmann and Elizabeth: Queen of the Seas, written by Lynne Cox and illustrated by Brian Floca (shown above).

All the votes from RES will go to the Vermont Department of Libraries. The Department of libraries will add our votes together with votes from elementary schools all over Vermont. The top vote-getter from the whole state will be declared the Red Clover Award Winner for 2016. More information about the Red Clover program is available at the Red Clover Website.

We are very proud of our scholars and their hard work in reading and evaluating this year's Red Clover books!
