Yesterday we all cheered for the books receiving one of the American Library Association's highest awards - Newbery/ Caldecott/ Sibert/ Corretta Scott King/ etc.
Today you might be wondering why your favorite book didn't get one of these coveted award seals. To answer this question, I suggest you go visit Monica Edinger's excellent blog post at the Nerdy Book Club blog.
But more awards are coming. I suggest you also follow the Cybils Award website.
