The American Library Association announced The Youth Media Awards this morning. I was able to watch the webcast once, but can't seem to get it to play again. I'm guessing the server is a bit overloaded.
Congratulations to Jerry Pinkney, who won the Caldecott for The Lion and the Mouse. This is a stunning book. As soon as I saw it back in the fall, I began recommending it to any teachers who were doing folk tales with their classes.
Congratulations also to Rebecca Stead, who won the Newbery Award for When You Reach Me. I haven't read it yet, but I immediately put a hold on it at the library.
I'll post a link or a complete list of honorees later in the day.
