I knew we were an Accelerated Reader title, but I hadn’t heard of the Sunshine Readers List.  In order to get onto the list, we need to be suggested to the committee.  As with everything concerning Saltwater Taffy, all we have to do is raise awareness surrounding the book and the rest takes care of itself.
