​Mount Baker Book Awards

Have you  or your student read a book that you think would be a great read for 4-6th grade students? Do you want to help choose books that will be included in the Sasquatch Challenge next year?  If so, please participate in the Mount Baker Book Awards - we'd love your recommendations!

Please use the MBBA recommendation form (paper copies are available in the library) to submit your recommendation.  

Here is some initial information about the MBBA:

  • 5 to 10 books will be selected.
  • Books can be from our current collection or not, and it doesn’t matter when it was published - as long as it doesn’t contain offensive or bias content.
  • Nominated titles will be split up, read, and presented to the committee for judging .
  • Committee will consist of teachers and librarians.
  • Considerations will include:
    • Reading enjoyment
    • Reading level
    • Interest level
    • Genre representation (all genre’s welcome)
    • Washington State interest
    • Effectiveness of expression
    • Imagination

The titles selected this spring will be added to our list of Sasquatch, Young Reader’s Choice Award Junior and Otter nominees for 2022-2023 Sasquatch Challenge. All book recommendations need to be submitted by April 15, 2022.

We look forward to seeing all the great suggestions from our Mount Baker community!
