Elizabeth Bird, from Fuse #8, has made her halfway mark predictions on the 2009 Newbery and Caldecott contenders. I have been told that her predictions are usually right on, and last year she picked both of the winners. One of Elizabeth Bird’s Caldecott picks is Wonder Bear, by Tao Nyeu, a book I plan to review very soon – the release date for Wonder Bear is September 2008.
The Children’s Book Review, named one of the ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children) Great Web Sites for Kids, is a resource devoted to children’s literacy. We publish reviews and book lists of the best books for kids of all ages. We also produce author and illustrator interviews and share literacy based articles that help parents, grandparents, teachers and librarians to grow readers. This article was written and provided by one of TCBR's regular contributors.
