5/13/16 - International Literacy Association includes MARVELOUS CORNELIUS in their Teachers' Choices 2016 Reading List. Since 1989, the ILA’s Teachers’ Choices project has identified outstanding trade books published in the last year that teachers themselves choose as being exceptional for curriculum use. Parents will also find the list invaluable, as it provides excellent choices for reading aloud or for help answering important questions prompted by children’s experiences as they grow up.
