I just returned from teaching my first class of the semester and told my students, as I always do, "reading is writing." I'm not sure they believe me, but it's probably the most important piece of advice (besides "butt in chair") that I'll give them all semester.
Given the flurry of exciting awards news in children's publishing this week, many of us will be applying this advice to the list of ALA Youth Media Award-winning books.
I'm planning to start with Three Times Lucky, by Sheila Turnage, which has been sitting on my Kindle for many months. How about you?
Happy reading! --Jeanne Marie
