Heller among finalists for Oregon Picture Book Award

Janet Heller's fiction picture book for children, How the Moon Regained Her Shape (Sylvan Dell, 2006), is one of five finalists for the Oregon Reading Association's Patricia Gallagher Picture Book Award. "A committee of ORA leaders, school librarians, public librarians, teachers, and school administrators review and select the books. The books must be readily available in paperback, be no more than five years old, hold an innate appeal to children, and have quality text and illustrations." Oregon school children of all ages can vote on the five books between September, 2008, and April, 2009. Votes must be reported by May 1, 2009.
