Don’t Blink, written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by David Roberts, has been selected as the winner of the 2020 Indiana Early Literacy Firefly Award. This award is presented by the Indiana Center For The Book and is designed to “promote early childhood literacy in Indiana.” According to a recent press release announcing the winning title, “nominated books are chosen for their ability to encourage parents and children to use the Every Child Ready To Read practices of talking, singing, reading, writing and playing together. Caregivers can use the Firefly books as a quality go-to resource for having fun and learning with their young children.”
Over 600 votes were received from 47 Indiana counties this year. Children ages 0-5 were encouraged to select their favorite book from five different titles.
