Wyoming Reads has announced the book selections for the coming year, and a great lineup it is! The program encourages literacy by providing a book to every first grade student in the state. In 2017 more than 7,500 children participated.

Each child gets to pick the one title they’d like to keep from six picture book choices. Sample kits are sent to schools in the months before the event so that students can familiarize themselves with the choices and decide which one they love most. This year’s books are:

  • Penguin Day:  A Family Story by Nic Bishop
  • Max and Bird by Ed Vere
  • Those Darn Squirrels and the Cat Next Door by Adam Rubin
  • The Giant Jumperee by Julia Donaldson
  • Little Red Riding Sheep by Linda Ravin Lodding
  • Be Quiet! by Ryan T. Higgins

Wyoming Reads is supported by the Sue Jorgensen Library Foundation with the help of generous donors, volunteers, and collaborative partners. Libraries across the state host their local Wyoming Reads celebrations. The Wyoming State Library’s Central Acquisitions Program acquires these books at discounts up to 40 percent, stretching donor dollars.
