Award News for HELEN'S BIG WORLD!
I just got some very exciting news- Helen's Big World: The Life of Helen Keller made the Charlotte Zolotow Award Highly Commended list!
The Charlotte Zolotow Award is given annually for outstanding writing in a picture book published in the United States in the preceding year. Up to five honor books and up to ten highly commended titles may also be named each year.
The award is for writing, so really this honor belongs to my esteemed collaborator, Doreen Rappaport. So I'm just along for the ride, but I'll still celebrate!
Here's an article in School Library Journal announcing all the winners.
