To show my appreciation for excellent and squeaky clean children’s literature, I’ve designed my own blog award to bestow on those books I happen to find extra special. 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.
Since it’s creation in 2012, I’ve given Squeaky honors to many of my favorites. For a complete list of winners, locate the category by that name in my sidebar.
