Jama,

I had brunch with Grace yesterday--and the subject of the ALA Awards never came up. I wasn't paying much attention to all the scuttlebutt about which books would most likely win the 2010 Newbery and Caldecott Awards. It was such a wonderful surprise when I heard Grace's good news.

I love all of the Caldecott picks this year!

That's so exciting! I have to put this book on my reading list.

Ebony,

I hope you like the book. The color plates in it are gorgeous! I was so happy when I heard the good news that I was jumping up and down. My husband wasn't quite sure what had happened.
