2018-2019 Prairie Pasque Nominees (Grades 4 & 5)

The Prairie Pasque Children's Book Award, sponsored by the South Dakota Library Association, is determined by fourth and fifth grade students throughout the state. Students are encouraged to read and vote master list of 10 titles on a three star scale. The book receiving the most votes from students wins the award. Books nominated for the award are selected by a committee of educators and librarians. A student may vote only for a book that he/she has read.
