The Massachusetts Children's Book Award, or M.C.B.A., is a chance for children in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade to recognize their favorite books.

We have a list of 25 books nominated by teachers, librarians, and publishers. They were published in the last five years, and they're available in paperback. Now it's your turn. If you're in 4th, 5th, or 6th grade, you are eligible to vote. All you have to do is read at least 5 of these books by March 14th, 2014. The Worcester Public Library is an official voting site, and the ballot box will be open from February 14th - March 14th.

To be able to vote, you just need to come by the children's room desk. You'll register and record which books you've read. Come by during voting season to pick your favorite candidate!

In the meantime -- how do you like the books? Let us know here by leaving comments on books as you read them!

I am writing about The Lost Hero . it is about three kids that are on a bus . One kid named Jason has no idea where or who he is . He also has a girlfriend named piper that he also does not remember . Leo is Jason’s best friend . I will not give you any more info about this book because then you would not have to read it . I am telling you to read it because it is full of action and suspense.
