This morning's edition of Reading Corner highlights several award-winning children's books—from the recent Caldecott winner A Sick Day for Amos McGee to Black Radishes, a new middle grade novel that was named a Sydney Taylor Honor Book for its authentic portrayal of the Jewish experience.
What is your favorite award-winning children's book?
If you're a regular reader of this blog, you already know my answer: anything by Madeleine L'Engle. Favorites include A Ring of Endless Light (Newbery Honor Book, 1981) and A Wrinkle in Time (Newbery Award, 1962).
Speaking of award winners, Judy Blume has won too many accolades to name. Currently, Random House's Listening Library is running a contest which might win you a personalized message from Judy herself!—not to mention an iPod Touch. Check it out here.
