Award Winners!

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!
