Caldecott Challenge 2008-2010

And so begins the rise of online videos being used to promote books and authors.
How quickly things change and become the norm.
It's hard to remember that I didn't always use book trailers and author interviews when promoting books with kids.

When this post goes live, I will be in Chicago for the ALA Annual Conference. 
I can't wait to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Caldecott Award after reading all 316 winners and honor books.

Oh... and...
Yes, there were cats:
