Newbery Book Review

and the winner is…

Forrest and I awoke at 5am this morning to witness the announcement of the ALA youth media awards only to find that our Mac didn’t have Windows Media Player. :(  It was a hurried few moments while we downloaded the program and crossed our fingers it would work.  Thankfully we made it in time to see most of the program and, of course, they save the best for last.  Best being the Caldecott (picture books) and Newbery.  Here, at long last are the winners:

Honor:

Claudette Colvin

Calpurnia Tate

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon :(

The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg

Medal Winner:

When You Reach Me

I was disappointed that my personal favorite didn’t win but I’m happy with the results.  WYRM deserves the medal and it really is a terrific story.  But that review is for another day because there’s a birthday breakfast to be eaten and enjoyed!!

  1. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear Elizabethhhhhh. Happy Birthday to you. How I wish we were there in person to deliver that message. BUT I love that you married a man who celebrates you well! May your day be filled with love, surprises, joy, oh and GIFTS :). Enjoy the pancakes.
