Mock Geisel Results 2008!

Over the past year, our Mock Geisel committee enjoyed reading books from a suggested reading list of 33 titles. Today, we gathered for an afternoon of exciting discussion about vocabulary, illustrations, text spacing, plot pacing and more! In the end, we agreed that this was a fantastic year for beginning readers!

We selected one title as our 2008 Mock Geisel Winner and two titles as Honor books.

The Mock Geisel winner we selected for 2008 was:

There Is a Bird on Your Head written and illustrated by Mo Willems.

Our two Mock Geisel Honor books were:

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Fly Guy written and illustrated by Tedd Arnold

What Will Fat Cat Sit On? written and illustrated by Jan Thomas

Congratulations to our Mock winners!
