American Library Association Announces Its 2007 Book Awards

The American Library Association has announced the winners of its 2007 awards for outstanding writing and illustration in children's literature published in the United States. To view the complete list of awards, access; click on Awards and Scholarships; then click on Books and Media Awards.
The high profile Newbery Award went The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron. This fine book is getting undeserved negative publicity for one word in the context of the story. Grandma suggests you check it out from your local library or buy a copy and read the delightful coming-of-age story for yourself.
Grandma will write more about Lucky in a future blog.
