The CLEL Bell Awards were announced this morning by the Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL) inititave. There are five books selected, each focusing on one of the early literacy practices. So, without further ado….

Write – Inside This Book: (are three books) by Barney Saltzberg
Talk – I Don’t Want to Be a Frog! by Dev Petty
Sing – Hiccupotamus by Steve Smallman

The best part is that CLEL also creates early literacy activity pages for each book! Each with a few ideas of how to extend the book after reading it. So definitely take a look at CLEL’s website for more information.
