2010 Charlotte Award Nominee


New York State Reading Association Charlotte Award Committe has nominated
The Orange Shoes
for the NYSRA 2010 Charlotte Award.

Written by Jersey gal
Trinka Hakes Noble


Illustrated by
the talented Jersey gal
Doris Ettlinger.

The Charlotte Award Committee considers picture books as well as novels for intermediate, and young adult categories.
Award named for the main character in E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web, the purpose of the Charlotte Award is to encourage students to read outstanding literature and ultimately become life-long readers. The award recognizes the authors and illustrators of such literature.

Over 14,000 students are expected to participate in choosing the winner.  Last year’s winner was The Great Fuzz Frenzy written by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel, illustrated by Janet Stevens, published by Harcourt.


  1. Ooh, I LOVED this book! The playground girls were so cruel! I don’t want to give too much away, but if you haven’t read it, it’s a winner. (Grab a Kleenex first, though.) And does anybody know how to make cornmeal mush? (I think I accidentally made it once, trying to make cornbread.)


    • Now, I really do have to read this book. Thanks for leaving me a comment. Kathy
