The Indiana Early Literacy Firefly Award is an initiative of the Indiana Center for the Book. Like the Young Hoosier and Eliot Rosewater book awards, the winning title is chosen by Indiana children - with one important difference. This award features picture books and ONLY children ages 0 - 5 are allowed to vote!
This is a very special way for parents, caregivers, and very young children to interact together with exceptional picture books. In addition, small children who participate will begin to understand the power their voice has as they cast their vote! V
