This week we read the 2016 Geisel Award winner. The award is named after Dr. Theodore Seuss Geisel and is given to the author of the best beginner reader. This year’s winner is Don’t Throw the Ball to Mo by David Adler.
David Adler is the author of several wonderful beginner reader series including Cam Jansen and Bones series. He also wrote the Picture Book series of biographies.
