LFP Classic Award Book Readers
Independent readers who are self-motivated and enjoy a challenge can work toward becoming a “Lake Forest Park Classic Award Book Reader.” Our library offers eight “Classic Award Book Reader Challenges” for readers in grades K-6.
Each year, students have an opportunity to join the LFP Classic Award Book Readers by reading six books from one of the lists. Each list consists of books that won the award and every book is a “gold medal” classic. Students in grades K-1 who read six books will need to have a parent sign their list. K-1 students can read with a parent. Students in grades 2-6 who read six books will need to score 80% or higher on the Reading Counts quiz for the book. When lists are completed and submitted to the library, students will be recognized as LFP Classic Award Book Readers and receive an award certificate.
You can print the lists by clicking on the links below. Lists are also available in the library.
