New Books, New Call Numbers: Award Winners

Our children’s collection reorganization continues apace!where did they go

Where did the Newbery and Caldecott books go?!?

Don’t worry we still have them!  We’ve decided to let all these classics play with the rest of the regular collection instead of keeping them separate (and lonely).  After all, the award winners are just as good a pick when you just want a book about trains, kittens, a good time travel mystery, or an exciting tale of brave adventurers as other books.

Have an “award winner” assignment or just want to see which books have won these prestigious awards?  Never fear!  Here are lists with the new call numbers for all these titles so you can find them in their new homes!

Word of the Day: Noise

Paul Fleischman. Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices.

Written to be read aloud by two voices — sometimes alternating, sometimes simultaneous — here is a collection of irresistible poems that celebrate the insect world, from the short life of the mayfly to the love song of the book louse. Funny, sad, loud, and quiet, each of these poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, joyful noise.
