Over 60 Years of the National Book Awards- 79 Fiction Winners

To celebrate the 60th year of the National Book Awards in 2009, the National Book Foundation presented a book-a-day blog on the 77 Fiction winners from 1950 to 2008.

The blog ran in 2009 from July 7th to September 21st, starting with Nelson Algren’s The Man With the Golden Arm, ending with Peter Matthiessen’s Shadow Country, and including works by Ralph Ellison, Saul Bellow, Philip Roth, Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty, and Alice McDermott. Readers discovered lesser known but equally talented National Book Award Fiction Winners such as Conrad Richter, Wright Morris, and Robb Forman Dew. On September 21st, readers had the chance to select The Best of the National Book Awards Fiction and win two tickets to the 2009 National Book Awards, the first time in its history the Awards were opened to a public vote.

The book-a-day blog prompted the Foundation to continue celebrating the Fiction winners by inviting writers to blog about each new winner after 2008.

The standardized tests kids take at the end of the year aren't the only way to know if they have good reading skills. In fact, I think they may be the worst way. He may have just found the prompts on the test uninteresting and just didn't try hard. Do you have other indications that he's a poor reader?
Expose your child to all kinds of books that are kid friendly. Go to the library and just check things out that seem remotely interesting to him. Go for picture books and chapter books. Pick up some non-fiction texts about animals or space or race cars or whatever your son enjoys.
How about a family book club? You each read the same book and then talk about it

For him, it's more for college age or at least high school.
What are his interests? How about non-fiction or historical fiction? Is he interested in bugs, animals, reptiles, astronomy?
My grand girly was reading way above grade level at age 5 and that presented a real problem. You can't give them things that will scare them, or things too sophisticated. She ripped through The American Girls series, then lots of books on bugs and animals. How about children's detective novels?
One that many kids is age dearly love is 'From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankenweiler' about two children (older sister, younger brother 'bout your son's age) who run away and manage to live in the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art until they're caught
