ALA Youth Media Awards

Every year, we look forward to January when the American Library Association's (ALA) Youth Media Awards are announced. This year, the announcement came last Monday, January 28, 2013. We are pleased to be able to share with you links to the 2013 ALA award winning and honor books that we blogged about over the course of 2012. In the coming weeks, we will select a few more titles from the list of winners and create blog entries to support you as you teach with these titles.
