Time to Unpack Some New Books

It is always a pleasure to get new books.  These packages mostly contain picturebooks that we considered for our Mock Caldecott Award in December.  Once I unpack them, I'll share them with you.

New Idea to Test

Am I back?  I'm not sure yet, but time will tell. Currently, I am experimenting with the idea of a blog versus a web page to promote book awards for children.  I desire to have a one-stop-shop for teachers, parents and children as they explore various awards.  The goal is to have a plethora of awards... connected to books, authors, & illustrators listed on the site.  Time will tell as I move forward between the two formats. If the blog seems to be the best format then it will either be housed on this site (which will become active again) or I will create a new blog. So please be patient...this endeavor as a work in progress.
