The Bell Awards Committee has selected the shortlist titles for the 2017 award. Five titles have been selected for each of the early literacy practices, Read, Write, Talk, Sing, and Play. View the complete shortlists on the Bell Awards page.
The winners will be announced February 5th. While the selection committee is responsible for the final decision, we value your input. All register CLEL members will receive a survey via email and anyone can join the discussion on our Goodreads page.
We have had yet another year of strong titles that support and model the early literacy practices. All of the titles on our shortlists and the numerous nominated titles are an excellent resource for storytimes, early education classrooms, and caregiver recommendations.
