The 2017 (Andrew) Carnegie Notable Children’s Videos Committee, chaired by Joanna Fabicon, will be discussing more than 20 DVDs published in 2016 and invite you to listen in. This committee is tasked with two functions: first, to select the most distinguished American Video (DVD) for children; and second, to select and annotate a list of notable videos of interest to children.
Did you know that ALSC has its own YouTube Channel? Neither did I. One of the themes of my year is exploring all the avenues ALSC uses to share information with its members and this is a fun one! I heard about this today in a committee meeting and had to check it out. The ALSC Channel has author and illustrator interviews, Newbery/Caldecott/Wilder acceptance speeches, and great information from members and leaders in ALSC.
