We have a new, well-funded award hosted through Hollins University this year - the Margaret Wise Brown Prize in Children's Literature. To submit books to the prize, publishers have to send four copies of their books to be considered to Hollins. Most go to the judges, but one lovely copy goes to our children's book collection here at Hollins.
OMG - can you say droooooool? So, each year, the best and top picture books from the publishing houses will be making their way to our campus, where me and my students will be glued to the pages as we flip through them all with glee. It's a lot of books to go through, but I've already begun. Can you say HEAVEN?
