ACPL Mock Sibert Award Winner and Honor Books
Yesterday afternoon a group of seven dedicated children's book readers gathered to discuss a long list of children's informational titles published in 2008. We learned a lot from each other and from our discussion about authority, documentation, organization, clarity, presentation style and more! In the end, we selected our Mock Sibert Award winner and three honor books.
