Snow Day, snow day!
I was kind of sad about not being able to watch the live feed of the 2011 ALA Youth Media Awards this year because I would have a class in the library (my very first!), but we got 3-1/2" of snow yesterday. So, no school and I get to watch the announcement!
It's always an exciting morning for me because I like to see if I did a good job with my collection development (when I was at the public library) and we have the books in our library already. If we don't, we've got to get those ordered!
So...here's who I hope wins...
Caldecott--Jon Muth for City Dog, Country Frog
Newbery--One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia....though Mockingird by Kathryn Erskine will be in the running too
Geisert--We Are in a Book by Mo Willems
The rest I'm afraid I don't have enough knowledge to make a good guess. So I'll just wait and see what happens!
You can watch live by clicking here: http://alawebcast.unikron.com/. There will be lots of flurry on Twitter and I'm sure facebook will have lots of action too. I'll post back after the announcements are made the winners and my thoughts!
