The MSBA Book Buzz’s mission is to encourage students in grades 4-8 to develop a life long love of reading. Books from the current Maine Student Book Award reading list will be highlighted and students are encouraged to add their own comments to the blog posts. We want to know what you really think about the books you are reading! We will also be highlighting different events throughout the school year so be sure to check back often!
The Maine Student Book Award program allows students to read, evaluate, and then vote on their favorite book on the MSBA list. This list is created by Maine librarians and teachers and contains published children’s and YA books from the previous year. Students must read at least 3 books from the list in order to be eligible to vote in March 2014.The Maine Student Book Award is a joint project of Maine Library Association, Maine Association of School Librarians and the Maine Reading Association. Any readers–student, teacher, parent, librarian–may submit an MSBA review form for any fiction or non-fiction title published in the current year that is appropriate for readers/listeners in grades 4-8. The review form may be photocopied so that a new form can be completed for each title read.
