We’re heading into the home stretch. Robin, Martha, and I are excited to see how this final vote plays out, especially since the last ballot had some very close votes. It seems pretty clear that either Mr. Tiger Goes Wild or Journey will be the winner, but which one? And what will the honor books be?
Here’s a link to the second ballot, and here, again, is the list of books under discussion:

Flora and the Flamingo by Molly Idle
Have You Seen My New Blue Socks? by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Sergio Ruzzier
Journey by Aaron Becker
