'Tomatoes in My Lunchbox' is a 2023-2024 Chickadee Award Nominee!
The Chickadee Award is a Maine children's choice picture book project. The program is for children in kindergarten through fourth grade throughout the state of Maine. A committee of librarians, teachers and early literacy professionals selected this year’s titles. All books on this year's list were published in 2022.
The Chickadee Award began in 2005 and is named after Maine’s state bird. It is modeled after other successful state children’s choice picture book awards and is intended to complement the Maine Student Book Award program that involves children in grades four through eight.
Thank you to the committee for selecting 'Tomatoes in My Lunchbox' for the 2023-2024 program!
