ALA Awards are named!

Rebecca Stead, Jerry Pinkney Win Newbery, Caldecott - at PW.
     The one year I don't watch the streaming live video at the ALA awards banquet and I know several people who won - dangit! I'm squealin' for them - albeit a few hours later. Here are the biggies and the ones that mean the most to me:

WHEN YOU REACH ME, by Rebecca Stead. Winner of the Newbery winner.

WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON, by Grace Lin. Newbery Honor Award winner.

THE LION AND THE MOUSE, by Jerry Pinkney. Caldecott Award winner.

THE SECRET WORLD OF WALTER ANDERSON, written by Hester Bass, illustrated by E.B. Lewis. National Council of Teachers of English Orbis Pictus Award for Outstanding Nonfiction for Children.

ALMOST ASTRONAUTS: 13 WOMEN WHO DARED TO DREAM, by Tanya Lee Stone. Sibert Award Winner.

     Wonder how many awards there are? Elizabeth Bluemle did a great post recently at Shelf-Talker giving the low-down: Know Your Awards?
     Pretty groovy stuff - they all get stickers now. I may have to buy new copies....

Elizabeth Bluemle did a great wrap up of all the winners at Shelf Talker: A Cornucopia of Awards!

Or instead of new copies, you can just buy the medals and attach them to your copies. Or even to those books you thought should have won! ;)
Oh Tasha - you shouldn't have told me that. You may have just created a monster!!
