Book Awards 2017

Hurray, the day is here! If you are a book geek like me, you probably spent some time today watching to reading about the AASL book awards that were released today. If you have not caught up yet, you can check out the results here:

There were some of my favorites that made various lists (They All Saw a Cat, Wolf Hollow, the Princess and the Warrior), but there were many more that I did not see coming, or perhaps had never even heard of! I am a bit ashamed of that, because when it comes to children's books I consider myself fairly knowledgable. With that in mind, I am making it my goal for next year to pay closer attention to various book blogs and mock Newbery and Caldecott awards sites. Perhaps I'll even craft a program about it for one of my groups of students.

So, what did you think about the results? Have you ever attended the AASL Mid-Winter Conference?
 Lt me know what you think!
