On my other blog (Booklady's Booknotes) which covers genres of all kinds (be warned, even though the content is clean, I do review books on this blog that are geared for older readers - middle school and high school. As always, I encourage you to be aware of what your elementary reader is reading.) I am hosting a reading challenge.
On January 10th, ALA will announce the winners of their Youth Media Awards. The top three are the Caldecott Award (given for best illustrations in a children's book), Newbery Award (for the best writing) and Printz Award (given for the best young adult/teen book.) With that in mind, I'd like to encourage people to read more of this books in 2011.
