The Indies Choice Award winners were recently named.  The four awards most of interest to writers for children and young adults are:

Young Adult:  Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell (Griffin)

Middle Reader: Flora and Ulysses, by Kate DiCamillo, K.G. Campbell (Illus.) (Candlewick)

Picture Book:  The Day the Crayons Quit, by Drew Daywalt, Oliver Jeffers (Illus.) (Philomel)

Indie Champion Award: This award goes to indie bookstore benefactor author James Patterson.

How many of these books have you read?  I have to admit that my total is 0. That’s right — zero.  That said, I am on the hold list at the library.  

My average is better if we add in the E.B. White Read Aloud Award Winners and Picture Book Hall of Fame inductees.

E.B. WHITE READ-ALOUD AWARD – MIDDLE READER: Flora and Ulysses, by Kate DiCamillo, K.G. Campbell (Illus.) (Candlewick)

E.B. WHITE READ-ALOUD AWARD – PICTURE BOOK: The Day the Crayons Quit, by Drew Daywalt, Oliver Jeffers (Illus.) (Philomel)

PICTURE BOOK HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES:  Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle (Holt Books for Young Readers); Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown, Clement Hurd (Illus.) (HarperCollins); and Stellaluna, by Janell Cannon (HMH Books for Young Readers).

Stellaluna is still a personal favorite.  What do you think of the various winner?
