home again soon

Getting ready to board the plane for the 5 hour flight home armed with 3 books, just in case. I happened into the book store in the Sea-Tac airport and bought a copy of the Caldecott Honor book, NOT A BOX. When I took it to the register, the person informed me it had won some sort of award this week. Cool.

Of course, it took 3 minutes to read this charming picture book about a rabbit whose imagination makes a cardboard box come alive for some thrilling adventures.

Quick Picks and BBYA lists are already posted. Almost all the folks have departed Seattle fro home. It was a lovely conference; the awards conference was, al always, exciting. With some regret, I bid adieu to QP Committee now that my 3 year commitment is over. I leave it, though, to jon a great committee: The Odyssey Committee which will select the first ever recipient for distinguished audio productions for children and teens. I intend to put many miles on my car listening to the submissions.

Here is the cover of NOT A BOX to give you some sense of the content.
