Happy Newbery & Caldecott Announcement Day!
I will confess here that I have yet to read the winner, The One & Only Ivan by K.A. Applegate. It has been on my list for a while now. I will get to it soon, although with its sudden notoriety, it may be a bit harder to obtain than your average library book. I will post my thoughts on the actual books as soon as possible.
I was pleased to see that Jon Klassen was awarded both the Caldecott Medal for This Is Not My Hat and the Honor for Extra Yarn! I wonder if that has ever occurred before? I am a big fan of Klassen's work and his humor and enjoyed both of these immensely.
A hearty congratulations to all the winners!
