|Casa Azul Barrio Nuevo for REDnesday|
While some of my family were south of the border( it's so pretty there), having a little rest and relaxation, plus doing a little shopping in beautiful Puerta Vallarta, we were waiting for the announcement of the Newberry Awards. I was delighted to receive this note from Kristen Lemire of Open Road Media:
The American Library Association announced the top books, video and audiobooks for children and young adults at its Midwinter Meeting in Dallas. Here are the winners:

Congratulations to all the winners. I have some great reading to look forward to this year!
Have you read some of these books? A Ball For Daisy, a children's picture book of course, is the only one I know about.
I'm off to the library now. Happy Wednesday!
