Yesterday, I had a random free hour in my day (what?) and I decided to stop by the Notable Children’s Books discussion. It was so inspiring to hear such intelligent, funny and thoughtful librarians critiquing some of the most interesting books of the year. If you’re at ALA, I would recommend listening in on their discussion. They meet from 1-4 today and 1-4 tomorrow in room 3022 W at the Moscone Center. If you’re at home, just go read Sidewalk Flowers (by Jon Arno Lawson and illustrated by Sydney Smith). Then read it again and talk to all your favorite people about it. This will get you closer to replicating the Notable’s experience!
