Oh my goodness — I can hardly sit still long enough to type this message! Mary and I just found out tonight that the Two Bobs WON (!!!!!) the Keystone to Reading award. That means that a kajillion (give or take) kids in Pennsylvania read the Bobs, along with a bunch of other amazing books, and decided they liked the Bobs the best. Do you know how harsh/critical/honest kids are??!!
This is the coolest award ever.
Okay, I know that my friend Peg Kehret has won like 197 Young Readers Choice Awards (at least two for every state). Have you seen her necklace of charms? Amazing. We’ll never be able to compete with Peg. But it doesn’t matter.
Mary and I are each floating on our own individual cloud nines — hers is over Eureka, California and mine is over Kenmore, Washington– tonight after learning about this news.
Thank you, young readers of the Keystone state for this incredible honor.
