Today the American Library Association announces its Youth Book & Media Awards, including the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award. Many of us know and love Dr. Seuss, an author who created engaging stories for beginning readers, and this award celebrates books that continue 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.
