Once again a Harry Potter book has topped a poll for kids. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been chosen as the top book in Scholastic's online poll "Kids' Pick For 2007" for 4th - 6th Grade readers.
The poll helped kick-off Read For 2007: Read For Life:
... the eighth annual worldwide read-a-thon to get kids excited about reading, created by Scholastic, the global children's publishing, education and media company, together with Reading Is Fundamental, the oldest and largest children's literacy organization in the country. On Friday, December 8, 2006, millions of children will join together to read for 2,007 seconds (approximately 33-1/2 minutes) and to commit to reading throughout the new year. Governors' spouses across the country, as well as teachers and librarians around the world will hold reading events celebrating the joy of reading on this day and every day.
