Were you able to watch the awards Monday? I did.. as long as my internet would keep up, at least. Everyone has been abuzz since. Great choices were made (as always), and unexpected choices are still being talked about. I think a picture book (I repeat, A PICTURE BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!) winning the Newbery Medal was completely unexpected and so well deserved. I will be writing a post on my thoughts of this next week… So stay tuned! 😉
Here are the cover art of the winners. Some were multi-winning!!!
