For some time, I’ve wanted to design my own award to grant to books on my blog that I think are extra special. I’ve simply been too busy to generate the creativity. But over the past few weeks, I’ve put together the Bookworm Blather Squeaky Award. (Can you tell I’ve been having a lot of fun with my PaintNet program lately?)
To qualify for the Squeaky Award, a book needs to meet the following criteria:
1. I have to really, really like the story, because, well, you know, this is my blog and my award.
2. The book must be free of profanity.
3. The book must be free of content inappropriate for its target audience. Any difficult subject matter must be handled in a kid-friendly way. This is purely my judgement call, because once again, this is my blog. You may design your own award. :)
Pretty simple, huh? I just want to show my appreciation for especially good, clean kids’ books. And I’m just in time, because tomorrow I’m going to bestow my Squeaky Award on its very first recipient. Tune in…
(For a list of Squeaky Award winners, locate the category by that name. I may back-award a few of my favorites on here as well as awarding future reads.)
