ALA 2011 Award winners

The new year brought an opportunity for me to purchase my very first Mac computer. The transition from my 19′ dinosaur PC to this 27″ big screen foreign platform is a wee challenge, especially with the loss of all my email content and the scavenger hunt to find my (presumedly) transferred files.

So, be patient here. I’ll be back to blogging in no time and even have two fabu interviews already lined up.

In the meantime, congratulations to all of the medal winners, honorees, and notable childrens’ book authors and illustrators of 2010-2011. For a complete list of the winners, check out the January 10, 2011 news release from ALA. 

Or, maybe you’d like to peruse the Horn Book listing of those 2011 winners that includes reviews and listings of additional awards earned by each title/artist.

And don’t forget to peek at the Association for Library Service to Children’s  “2010 Notable Children’s Books” list.

Quality books are reason to celebrate:)
