Since YELLOW STAR is one of my VERY favorite books of the year. And since we got to meet the author, Jennifer Roy at her Cover to Cover signing, I am thrilled that it is receiving so many awards. Thanks to Fuse #8 for the news of the 2007 Sydney Taylor Book Awards, which recognize the best in Jewish Children's Literature. Congrats Jennifer Roy..again! Yellow Star deserves every award it gets!

    I haven't had a chance to read Yellow Star, and I'm sure it's wonderful, but I'm sorry to see that you forgot to mention the winner of the Sydney Taylor Book Award gold medal, Brenda Ferber's JULIA'S KITCHEN. I'm not sure why this extraordinary book is being overlooked in the children's lit blogs. If you haven't had a chance to read this gold medal, debut novel, please do. It's an incredibly touching story of loss and healing that is well deserving of all the critical recognition it's receiving.
