2009 Sydney Taylor Book Awards

Whoopsie!  I posted about the 2008 award winners earlier today by mistake.  The mistake made even worse by the fact that I got an email telling me the right titles before I even started my post.  Ah well.

So here are the 2009 Award Winners:

Younger Readers

As Good As Anybody: Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Joshua Heschel’s Amazing March Toward Freedom by Richard Michelson with illustrations by Raul Colon.

Older Readers

Brooklyn Bridge by Karen Hesse

Teen Readers

A Bottle in the Gaza Sea by Valerie Zenatti
