What do you think will win?

Today, I'm hanging out over at Random Acts of Reading, where the blogger panel answers the question,"What Are Your ALA Award Predictions?"



Head over there and join the discussion, or comment here. What do YOU hope will win the Caldecott, the Newbery, or the Printz award? You have until January 28 to figure it out!

  1. Even though I don't have any reason to read picture books, I read Extra Yarn. Am I the only one who thought it was kind of... creepy?

    1. Aha, Ms. Yingling! Now I'll have to go back and re-read it. I don't remember being creeped out by it. I do love the illustrations, though.

      Thanks for stopping by. I've been off the blogger circuit for almost a month and I'm rusty.

  2. Wow, there's a lot of great books to choose from for the awards. I'm not familiar with many of them, so I wouldn't know how to choose.

    1. Hi Janet. Welcome to the blog. That's okay, but if you're writing for kids, I'm sure you'll want to read more kids' books this year. Then you can make an educated guess next year! Have to admit, though, I'm rarely right.

  3. I just popped over to read your predictions Joanne-- they looked pretty good to me! I think you're right about John Greene. I still haven't read Code Name Verity but I'm dying to. Great list-- fun to read. Can't wait to see who does win.

    1. Hi Kat! Well, he just won the YABC Choice awards, so he's on top right now. Let me know whenever you get around to reading Code Name Verity. It's a complex but fascinating plot.
