Welcome, Readers!

The contest Save the Picture Book has ended. Telling people about funny, informative, beautiful, or generally awesome picture books continues. I also share middle grade books, book apps, and educational apps that my kids and I like.

January Winners Announced!

Congratulations to Brookside Charter School in Kansas City, winner of January's Save Everything! (and the Picture Book.)

The school sent in more than 100 picture book reviews! This was facilitated through April Roy and Ann Reaves of the Plaza Library, part of The Kansas City Library system, which is bringing Save Everything! into the schools they visit.

How I Learned Geography by Uri Shulevitz was the school prize (along with Guinness World Records 2011 and other worldly prizes.)

Individual picture book prizes were:

When It's 6 O'Clock in San Francisco, by Cynthia Jaynes Omololu.
One World, One Day, by Barbara Kerley.
All the World, by Liz Garton Scanlon, ill. by Marla Frazee.
Garbage Helps Our Garden Grow, by Linda Glaser, phot. by Shelley Rotner.

And bonus book The Best Pet of All by David LaRochelle, ill. by Hanako Wakiyama.

The Plaza Library will deliver the prizes when they read to the school again this month!
