Every January, the American Library Association presents an award to the author and illustrator of “most distinguished informational book”– the Sibert Medal. And every year, we like to seek out books that meet the criteria for this award.
On Monday evenings, look for posts on this blog that highlight some of the newly published children’s & YA books we’ve discovered . If you have thoughts to share about any of the books or have a title to suggest, please feel free to do so in the comments field.
