Prizing Books through Book Prizes.
Sandel, Lenore
If children's satisfaction in and through books is not diminished by reading instructional practice or lack of reading proficiency, and if the thrust of reading enjoyment adds momentum to the instructional program, it is indeed within the realm of teacher expectation, of possibility and plausibility, that book awards for progress or achievement will be prized by the student winners. A 1928 Horn Book contest for book notes illustrates how important books and reading were then to some young people. The responses of students gathered at the conclusion of a course in Children's Literature document the need for preservice and inservice education to help teachers learn how to help their students to value both the reading and ownership of books.
