Welcome back to EBYR All Over, a Friday roundup of all the EBYR-related news, reviews, interviews, and other interesting online content we can gather in a given week.
News from EBYR & Elsewhere
Fur, Fins, and Feathers by Cassandre Maxwell won the Maryland Blue Crab Young Reader Award for transitional nonfiction, which recognizes the best fiction or nonfiction book published for 2nd through 4th grade readers. The Maryland Library Association says the book “combines well researched illustrations of the Victorian era with a classic storybook format to tell the tale of a man who was devoted to the humane care of wild animals.”
- The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch won a 2016 Carter G. Woodson Book Award, which honors “the most distinguished books appropriate for young readers that depict ethnicity in the United States.”
- Mom, There’s a Bear at the Door was reviewed by School Library Journal. The verdict: “The interplay between text and art enhances this engaging tale of a mother, her son, and his bear. This is a sweet additional purchase for imaginative children, especially those who have an answer for everything.”
