Georgia and Alabama like Buffalo Music!

Cool new news: Buffalo Music has been nominated for the 2010-2011 Georgia Book Award! This award was established in 1968 by Sheldon Root, a professor at the Department of Education at the University of Georgia. The award was started to promote a love of reading in the children of Georgia. This month students across the state will vote on which book they feel should win. More info about the award, and a complete list of this years nominees can be found right here.

Also (!), Buffalo Music is being considered for the Alabama Camellia Children's Choice Award! The Alabama Camellia Award program (formerly known as the Emphasis on Reading program) selects books from three grade level categories: K-1, 2-3, and 4-6. For the full list of nominees please check out their website.

It is such a great feeling to know that so many little hands will be holding and flipping through the pages of this book. HUGE thanks to the states of Georgia and Alabama for recognizing Buffalo Music and including it on their short lists!
