The Great Stone Face Award is an award that is given out every year to around 25 new 4th through 6th grade books by the GSF Committee. It is sponsored by the Children’s Library of New Hampshire. The name “Great Stone Face” comes from the Man in the Mountain, which is the most historic landmark that was in New Hampshire. This year’s Great Stone Face books are really, really good judging by the one I read and how Mrs. Eaves loves the 7+ that she has read. Hope you get some great books from this list:
