Brooklyn, we have a winner!

Congratulations to Frankie Moore, winner of our Brooklyn Week contest! A signed print by Stephen Savage of “Goodnight Bridge” — a view of the Brooklyn Bridge outside the Great Green Room — will be yours. Lucky! And Roger really did pick from a hat (well, a bowl…).

With apologies to Margaret Wise Brown.

Frankie’s comment (it’s a good one, right?):

I love two of them. Ever since I read Lynn Curlee’s “Brooklyn Bridge” I have been fascinated by the bridge and felt overjoyed to walk across it a few summers ago for the first time.
“Honeybee Man” inspired me to start teaching the second grade a unit on honeybees. Their social studies curriculum is community. My discovery of this book coincides with my husband starting to keep bees. What synchronicity. This is how my life works!
