ALA Youth Media Awards

Oh my goodness! So many books I must now read!

I watched the very end of the webcast to see that Matt De La Pena won the Newbery Award for Last Stop on Market Street. (The book is also a Caldecott Honors winner.)

The Twittersphere is all abuzz with the announcements. If you missed anything, you can go here:

Congratulations to Jerry Pinkney for winning both the Coretta Scott King – Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement and Laura Ingalls Wilder Award.

What is on my list to read...besides all of them?

Last Stop on Market Street
Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear
Trombone Shorty
The War That Saved My Life
Voice of Freedom: Fannie Lou Hamer, Spirit of the Civil Rights Movement
