Of course, everyone already knows about today’s ALA award announcements, so no need to extrapolate here. "Show Way" by Jacqueline Woodson, illustrated by Hudson Talbott received a Newbery Honor, which threw me for a loop. I should probably be embarrassed to admit here that I didn’t know picture books qualified for the Newbery. I thought "Show Way" would fall under the Caldecott category. Do I have this right, wrong, or am I simply furthering my foolery? Either way, I’m rushing out to get this one…well, after they attach the little metalic seal. Congrats to all!
