Hear ye, year he! Oops, I mean, hear ye, hear ye! The children's literature blog Big A little a announces,
This month we’ve seen a spate of book awards, some of which have left us wondering: couldn’t we, the intelligent, savvy members of the kidlitosphere do better? Or, at least, differently?
So, we’re inaugurating our own book awards, honoring books published in English for children in 2006. Anne Boles Levy, of Book Buds, will launch a site this week and administer the awards process. What we need first is a name for this award, so we can get the award site up asap. One suggested name is The Belugas. Okay, that was my suggestion, but I suspect it’s a little weird. Anyone have a better idea? Head on over to Book Buds and make your contest name suggestion.
Click the link in this post's first paragraph and read about these to-be-named awards, and then come back! Because I need you. Yes, you.
As the administrator of the poetry committee, I am recruiting five folks for a nominating committee and five for a judging committee. Children's literature bloggers, children's writers who blog, and general literature bloggers are eligible for either committee. (You can be on one or the other.)
The nominating committee will narrow down a list of suggestions for Best Children's Poetry Book 2006 to five, count 'em, five books. The judging committee will, yes!, judge the winner from those five.
Nominate yourself for either poetry committee. Use the comments feature for this post or email me at c_spaghettiATyahooDOTcom.
