So, I bet a lot of you watched the awards live online. If you didn’t, here’s the link where you can see what happened this morning http://ala.unikron.com/2017/
I’m putting this post up really fast so you all have a place to respond to the winners. Martha and Robin and I will chime in later.
Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat by Javaka Steptoe won the 2017 Caldecott Medal
The committee chose four honor books:
- Leave Me Alone! by Vera Brosgol
- Freedom In Congo Square illustrated by R. Gregory Christie
- Du Iz Tak? by Carson Ellis
- They All Saw a Cat by Brendan Wenzel
SO what do you all think?
[Edited to add this link to the Horn Book Magazine review for each of these books.]
