Twitterville Talk #43

Enjoy a little bit of this and a little bit of that as National Poetry Month begins, more award winners are announced and new titles are revealed.

Winners of the 2012 Indies Choice and E. B. White Read-Aloud Awards Announced  As an educator or parent you could not go wrong with these winners or honor recipients.

Retweeted by author Shannon Hale, these are some of the coolest book images I have ever seen, posted at the one and only extraordinary blog, Brain Pickings.

Thanks to Literacyhead for providing a link to Literature Heavyweights.  I have always known great literature makes for a strong foundation but....what didn't I think of this?

A retweet by the American Library Association Chapters branch speaks to the importance of certified librarians in an educational setting---Google can bring you back 100,000 answers, a librarian can bring you back the right one.  Neil Gaiman  (Newbery award winning author, The Graveyard Book)  Thanks Mr. Gaiman for telling it like it is.

Newbery Honor Award winning author Joyce Sidman tells readers at School Library JournalWhy I Write Poetry: A really good poem can reach kids in wondrous and unexpected ways.  This would make a wonderful introduction to bringing more poetry into classrooms and homes during National Poetry Month.

The 2012 Eisner nominations are in!  Our students feel the same way checking these out at the "speed of light".
