Peter Sis won the Hans Christian Andersen Award! for best illustrator in 2012. Congratulations, Mr. Sis! The best thing about the Hans Christian Andersen Award is that the award includes authors and illustrators from around the world. This award is presented each year by the International Board on Books for Young People. Winning is a huge honor.
The 2012 Han Christian Andersen Award winner for writing is Maria Teresa Andruetto from Argentina. Andruetto won this award not only because of her novels for young people but also for her work promoting literacy among children and teens.
So one of today's Kids Book Websites is IBBY - The International Board on Books for Young People.
Check back in an hour or two for another Kids Book Website and a book review. This post should stand alone.
