Yee haw! Holler Loudly, illustrated by Barry Gott (Dutton, 2010) has received the 12 annual St. Mary's Book Award from St. Mary's International School in Tokyo.
In her letter, elementary school librarian Tammy Hays said, "This is a boy's school and Holler's antics really hit home with many of our students, especially those boys who never seem to use their 'quiet' voices."
Featured below is wonderful art, inspired by the book, courtesy of St. Mary's students:
|Kenshiro H. Readiness Program, kindergarten|
|Ren I., 1st Grade|
|Wayne H., 2nd Grade|
|KyuWon Min, 3rd Grade|
I'm completely wowed by the students' artistic efforts and enthusiasm! Thanks to everyone at St. Mary's! It's a thrill to think of Holler visiting with y'all in Tokyo. See related interviews and Holler Loudly teacher guides for Pre-K, kindergarten, grade 1, and grade 2 by Shannon Morgan.
