Today the American Library Association announces its Youth Book & Media Awards, including the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award. Many of us recognize Dr. Seuss as an author who created engaging stories for beginning readers, and this award celebrates books that continue and improve on that tradition today. If you need a fun suggestion for a beginning reader, this list has some great ideas. For more information about this award and its recipients, check the ALA website.
Help us recognize these honorees and winners by checking one out today.
