The Cybils and Walter Dean Myers

I'll add my voice to the cheering chorus about the selection of Walter Dean Myers as the new National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. He's a fantastic choice. (And hey, he's even been to GottaBook as part of 30 Poets/30 Days!)

Not enough children's literature related excitement for you? Well, then, the Cybils finalists have been announced. Fantastic books in there in all sorts of categories (and good apps, too), and I'm actually quite relieved not to be a judge this year having to make final decisions.

Good ways to kick off the new year, indeed....

Thanks for the links - and yes, it seems like the Cybils are the talk of the blogs this week! Happy New Year, Greg!
