Last week Tintin and everyone else who read at least five Texas Bluebonnet books attended a special breakfast in the school library and voted on their favorite Bluebonnet book. Students all across Texas participated in the voting at their own schools. The author of the book receiving the most votes will be declared the winner of the 2011-2012 Texas Bluebonnet Award. Here's Tintin voting for Tom Angleberger's Origami Yoda:
For each book they read the children had to fill out a log describing a memorable moment from the book. Here's Tintin's collection:
Amazing Faces 9/26/11
I like "Which Way to Dreamland" because dreams are special and sometimes come true. My favorite was: How in the world do dreams get in your head? and: Do they hide with dust bunnies under the bed?
Wild Times at the Bed and Biscuit 9/26/11
I liked when Ernest and the other animals saved Sir Walter in the woods. Sir Walter was lost in the woods because he was helping the foxes dig a hole, but they got away.
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda 10/8/11
I liked when they made a bet that if Tommy dances with Sara, Dwight wins, and if she doesn't then Harvey wins.
Mirror Mirror: A Book of Reversible Verse 1/9/12
This book is about poems and fairy tales that are reversed. My favorite fairy tale is "Bears in the News." This book is reversed because it helps children like to read poems and fairy tales.
The Buddy Files: The Case of the Lost Boy 1/23/12
I liked when Connor ran away and Buddy tried to help his mom find him.
Imogene's Last Stand 1/23/12
I liked when Imogene said, "Heck no, I won't go!" and wouldn't leave the museum.
