I want to add, now that I got that Caldecott yawp’ing out of me, congratulations to all of today’s winners in all categories.
Just because I want to celebrate with more art, here’s a previously-featured illustration from Seeds of Change (Lee & Low Books, April 2010), written by Jen Cullerton Johnson and illustrated by Sonia Lynn Sadler, who was named the Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe New Talent (Illustrator) Award winner. (To see more, visit this August 2010 post.)
The Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Book is Gary Golio’s vibrant picture book biography of the young Jimi Hendrix, Jimi Sounds Like a Rainbow (Clarion Books, October 2010), illustrated by Javaka Steptoe. You can visit this December 2010 post for more illustrations from that title.
Okay, seriously. To the work-that-pays…
