It’s the ninth annual Panther Paw Book Contest! This year’s book list may be the best ever! See the Animoto slideshow here for a look at the 2012 titles. The Panther Paw contest is for all Parish students in kindergarten through second grade. Parents are welcome (and encouraged) to take part, too. The goal is to explore some of the best of the recently published children’s books from different genres. As in years past...any student, parent or teacher who reads or listens to at least ten books can vote for his/her favorite. Anyone who reads or listens to all twenty books will be eligible to enter a drawing for a chance to win a complete set of the Panther Paw books for his/her classroom. Parents may check out one Panther Paw book at a time for overnight or a weekend. It’s fun to see students and parents huddled up and reading together in the library, too! Be sure to take a look at the activities that your family might enjoy at home. We'll vote in March, and the winning book will be celebrated. Until then...happy reading!
