Monarch Winner!

The votes from more than 120,000 children from kindergarten through 3rd grade across the state of Illinois have been tallied and they've picked their favorite book of the year: Superdog, The Heart of a Hero by Caralyn Buehner and illustrated by Mark Buehner. Superdog is the story of Dexter who is so little that other dogs forget to invite him to play and the tomcat bullies him. Dexter decides to change things for himself. He works really hard, even when he's so tired all he wants to do is curl up on the rug and go to sleep, and eventually makes his dreams come true. This cleverly written and beautifully illustrated story is truly enjoyable and you'll quickly find yourself believing Dexter can do anything. "Dexter has determination, spirit, and heart as he proves, above all, that no matter how little you are, you can still do very big things."
See for yourself what kids across the state already know, "Superdog, The Heart of a Hero" is a thumbs-up, award winning, number one book to read.
