The winners of the ALA Youth Media Awards were announced yesterday morning. (Complete list of winners here.)
I'm still scratching my head a bit at the Newbery winner -- the picture book Last Stop On Market Street. I'll withhold judgement until I've had a chance to read it.
But which of the winners DID I read this year?
All three Newbery Honor books -- The War That Saved My Life (my pick for winner), Echo, and Roller Girl
Caldecott Winner -- Finding Winnie
Sibert Honor book -- Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans
Stonewall winner -- George
Both middle grade Schneider winners -- Fish in a Tree and The War That Saved My Life
I'm currently reading one of the Coretta Scott King Honor books -- All American Boys
Pura Belpré Author Award -- Enchanted Air by Margarita Engle
