My experience on the 2022 ALSC Notable Children’s Recordings Committee

Congratulations to all involved in the YMA Awards– writers, artists, publishers, committee members, and everyone it took to create this year’s canon of beautiful stories. Let us also remember the stories and creators that weren’t recognized and the stories yet to come. They matter. Awards are a huge honor, but they are also just awards and not a measure of a story’s worth or a creator’s talent.  This year, I was on the ALSC Notable Children’s Recordings Committee. What an honor it was. Training for a half marathon was a helpful activity to complete the over 1,000 listening hours each member was assigned this year!

2022 Notable Children’s Recordings Discussion List

Round 2 – January 2022 The 2022 Notable Children’s Recordings committee will be meeting via Zoom on January 13, 14, and 17 for their Round 2 discussions and YOU are invited to listen in! Audience members do not contribute to the discussion, but listen as the committee members debate each of the items on the discussion lists in their search for the materials that best meet the Notable criteria. This is an opportunity to hear about audio books and music that have been published in 2021. It is also an opportunity to learn about the evaluation process.
