BEHOLDING BEE gets ALA attention!

I am thrilled that BEHOLDING BEE is one of 15 novels nominated today to the list of Notable Children's Books that will be discussed at the ALA conference in Chicago!

The ALSC committee writes that “notable is defined as: Worthy of note or notice, important, distinguished, outstanding. As applied to children’s books, notable should be thought to include books of especially commendable quality, books that exhibit venturesome creativity, and books of fiction, information, poetry and pictures for all age levels (birth through age 14) that reflect and encourage children’s interests in exemplary ways."
