Photo 500With snow days, Valentine’s Day, and this being the last week of school before February vacation, it was pretty quiet in the LTC. However, it was a great week to celebrate the recent ALA Youth Media Awards of 2014!

Since most of us participated in the Pine Glen Mock Caldecott, we have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of the winner of the real Caldecott Medal (and the Newbery, the Geisel, the Sibert, the Coretta Scott King, the Pura Belpre, and the Schneider–so many great awards!)

Below is the video playlist we used in class to introduce students to this year’s winners. We watched an Animoto of all the winners, we showed some of the books, and we watched some of the book trailers. Needless to say, we shared lots of beautiful books that the students are excited to start reading!
