The Right Word? Phrase? Over the Moon!

Thank you ALA!

Today is Ground Hog Day as well as the announcements for American Library Association’s youth media awards. It is humbling, thrilling and a huge honor that The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus by Jen Bryant (Eerdmans Books for Young Readers) garnered the Sibert Medal as well as a Caldecott Honor.

The right word? Over the moon.

Thank you to the Sibert committee and the Caldecott committee for all your hard work and dedication.

And to Kwame Alexander who won the Newbery Medal, Dan Santat for the Caldecott Medal and all the other honorees, BRAVA!
