Who won Caldecott Medal? The Caldecott Winners
Dramastef and I alternate every two weeks on filling SAPs. I'm on SAPS May 6 - 19.
As a CL in books I'm committed to helping reviewers and answering your questions. Please ask before you make comments in reviews or on the message boards that you can't locate a book. In case you can't locate a book or some helpful information, these links have proven helpful:
......Report a Bug
......Book Request Form
......Magazines Request Form
......About Category Leads, Top Reviewers and Advisors
......Caldecott Medal Books
......Newbery Medal Books
......Coretta Scott King Awards
......Theodor Seuss Geisel Awards
......Michael L. Printz Awards for Young Adult Books
Don't hesitate to contact me or the other category lead in books if you have questions or need assistance in Books or Magazines.
When submitting a book request complete as many fields in the form as possible, but I will return the forms to you if they are missing author name, publication date, publisher name, and ISBN. Providing an image URL speeds up the SAP process, but on older books these can be difficult to locate - I'll understand if you can't find one. If you have questions contact me at my gmail address (very bottom of this page).

Thank you for reading my reviews! I enjoy writing about gardening, environmental and health topics, pets, and for a break from work I read and review kids' books. In my life I've run nature centers, taught in classrooms, managed a greening school project, and most recently ran a children's museum. I'm a sucker for fabulous parks and wilderness areas. My big loves are outdoors, traveling, and our dogs. Until earlier in 2010 my two great big labradors held my heart along with another big love. Today their memories pop up at the most importune moments so ignore me if I weep, but also ignore me if I seem out of control or distracted by a nearly adolescent puppy. She looks a lot like the Marley dog and on occasion, acts like the Marley dog. I hope my reviews help you make informed decisions and make you laugh a little, or groan a little, along the way. I'm only trying to provide one more tool for living happier and healthier lives.
