Bridge To Reading 2020 Picture Book Award Winner

The Carnegie-Stout Public Library, in partnership with the Youth Services Subdivision of the Iowa Library Association, is proud to announce the winner of the 2020 Bridge to Reading Picture Book Award: “There’s a Dragon in Your Book,” written by Tom Fletcher, illustrated by Greg Abbott, and published by Random House Books for Young Readers (2018).

This award was formed as part of The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading and is administered by a committee of librarians, teachers, and early literacy leaders. Ten picture books were selected for the final ballot, and thousands of kindergarten and preschool children across Iowa voted for their favorite book between February 1 and April 30, 2020.

The Bridge to Reading committee thanks all the teachers, librarians, parents, and caregivers who made this initiative possible by reading to children and helping them to vote.

Julien’s Journal, the Dubuque area lifestyle magazine, is a monthly regional feature magazine for and about Dubuque and the tri-state region.
