Special Thanks to the Educators

Each of the teachers and librarians who supervised the winning students received a prize, too: a gift certificate for up to 15 children’s books, courtesy of Penguin Random House—and recognition for an excellent job!

There was plenty of pride to go around onstage and in the audience, as students, teachers, families and special guests celebrated at Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Library.


They sang the praises of the kids, their hard work and creative spirit.
