Calling All Guessers!

Hey Guessing Geisel Fans,

Are you a public or school librarian or teacher passionate about beginning readers? Have you served on a beginning reader award committee (Geisel, Maryland Blue Crab, etc.) or a best books committee that included beginning readers? Are you interested in digging into the Geisel Award criteria? If you found yourself nodding yes, we hope you’ll consider becoming a guest contributor.
Last year we had a great roster of guest contributors who brought a variety of perspectives, observations, and experience to the shared table. Guest contributors are asked to write at least one blog post between June and December. Posts are approximately 500 words and focus either on a current Geisel contender or on a topic related to beginning readers.

If you’d like to participate, please email us at by May 1, 2017. In that email include a short paragraph to let us know:
  • Your name
  • Position/Organization
  • If you’re a school or public librarian or teacher
  • Why you’d be an excellent guest contributor
  • 3 beginning reader titles (already or soon to be published in 2017) that you’d like to blog about

If you have questions, you can comment below or send us an email.
