Today was the day!  The winners of the big children’s book prizes were announced at the American Library Association meeting this morning.

Here’s the link to the ALA’s press release:

So  many great winners, but I was especially happy to see that Blackout, the picture book by John Rocco, was named a Caldecott Honor Book.  The Newbery winner, Jack Gantos’ Dead End in Norvelt, has just moved to the top of my to-read pile!

NPR’s All Things Considered featured a short interview with Chris Raschka, the winner of the Caldecott Award. If you want to listen, click here:
