Yesterday the ALA announced the 2011 Youth Media Award Winners. I was especially excited to hear the winner for the Caldecott Medal: "A Sick Day for Amos McGee." Unfortunately, I haven't yet read it though it's been on my Amazon wishlist for a couple months.
The illustrations are completely charming. Don't you want to rush right out and get it?
The Caldecott Honor books are "Dave the Potter: Artist, Poet, Slave" and "Interrupting Chicken." Have you read any of the award winners? What do you think?
And Tomie dePaola won the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award- much deserved!
