ALA Annual 2011

Want to hear about great new books for kids?

Then the Notable Children’s Books Discussions are for you! These discussions are an opportunity to listen in as some of the best children’s books published this year are discussed by committed and passionate children’s librarians, children’s literature specialists, and professors & educators committed to quality children’s materials.

This committee is charged with developing an annual list of books “of especially commendable quality, books that exhibit venturesome creativity, and books of fiction, information, poetry, folklore, and picture books that reflect and encourage children’s interests in exemplary ways.” It’s quite a task… and these eleven committee members are to be commended.

Discussions continue today. If you are in New Orleans, I’m sure you would find it fascinating to stop in to the discussions; today they will be discussing informational picture books and nonfiction titles. If you are not able to attend in person, the discussion list is available here.
