04 May 2022

Federico and the Wolf (HarperCollins) by Rebecca J. Gomez, illustrated by Elisa Chavarri  has been nominated for the 2023 Star of the North Award, in conjunction with the Minnesota Youth Reading Awards.

The Star of the North Picture Book Award was established in 2013 under the auspices of the Minnesota Youth Reading Awards. The purpose of the award is to promote quality, engaging picture books and reading for pleasure among school-aged children. The final list of ten nominees is selected by the Star of the North Selection Committee.

Throughout the year, teachers, media specialists, and public librarians are encouraged to present the nominees in appealing and meaningful ways, to read the books aloud, and to develop activities that will connect the literature to the curriculum. In March, students across the state vote on which books they think should win for the individual categories. The book receiving the most votes from children in grades K-2 is the winner.

Congratulations Elisa!
