I'm standing for the 2019 Newbery Committee! Check my Sondy for Newbery! page to find out why you should vote for me!
Announcing the 2016 Sonderbooks Stand-outs! These are my personal favorites of all the books I read in 2016.
A Poem for Peter: The Story of EZRA JACK KEATS and the Creation of THE SNOWY DAY, by Andrea Davis Pinkney, with pictures by Lou Fancher and Steve Johnson, was my #3 pick in Children's Nonfiction. It's both a picture book biography of Ezra Jack Keats and a poem about the power of the book he wrote, The Snowy Day.
