Chocolate Lily Book Awards: Stanley's Little Sister

Today the primary classes read Stanley's Little Sister by Vancouver author, Linda Bailey. Many of the students remembered the Stanley book that we read last year for the Chocolate Lily awards, Stanley's Beauty Pageant. A new cat named Fluffy is brought into Stanley's home and although he is not sure he wants a "little sister", he keeps trying to be a good dog and make friends.
Here are some of the comments from when I asked the students why this book should be an award-winning picture book:
"I love it because it has a good ending" - Tyler T. (div 10)
"The colours are beautiful" - Ginger (div 9)
"Stanley was nice He kept trying to be a friend" - Quizzy (div 8)
"It has good details/words" - Thomas (div 7)

I think what the students liked most about this book is that they could relate to the main character and his feelings.
