Dear Reader,

My daughter’s been bit by the eBay bug again, and is selling some
books. If you are interested in beginning chapter books or a 1954
Childcraft encyclopedia, here’s the link.

Anyone else have preteens or teens selling stuff on eBay? I’m
considering writing a “how to” guide for teens wanting to run
their own eBay business. What do you think? You can post
comments in my virtual office

Last week’s “Web site” vs. “website” debate was overwhelmingly won
by the simple and effective “website.” See all the comments.

Today’s newsletter is brought to you by the following sponsor.

See ya on the Net,
Barbara J. Feldman

My daughter is getting to that age where everyone else is more of an expert than dear old Mom and Dad. And books I was recommending were being summarily turned down. “Mom, that book is as OLD as I am!” But when this year’s Newbery Medal winners were announced, she was reading (and enjoying) one of the books honored as a runner-up. So, she choose another book from this year’s picks, and liked that one too. Thank goodness for experts with good taste in new books!

Boston Globe Horn Book Awards



First presented in 1967, the Boston Globe Horn Book Awards are given annually to winners in three categories: Picture Book, Fiction and Poetry, and Nonfiction. The 2002 winners are featured here; past winners are on separate pages, organized by decade. Best clicks are on the Parents’ Page, where you’ll find Children’s Classics (a reading list in PDF for ease of printing) and printable book plates to adorn your own library of books. For a fun look at the history of book plates, read “Where do Book Plates Come From?”

Database of Award-Winning Children’s Literature



This compendium of 3,686 award-winning books, created by reference librarian Lisa Bartle, has an extensive search function that makes it easy to find a good read. Enter your age, gender preference, favorite genre, desired historical period, preferred setting, and even a keyword or phrase, and press “Search.” Results include winners from more than thirty different awards. See “Explanation of Awards” for the complete list with links to each award-giving organization.

Newbery Medal



The Newbery Medal, named for eighteenth-century British bookseller John Newbery, is awarded annually to “the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.” It is one of several awards given by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association. Instituted in 1922, the Newbery Medal was the world’s first children’s book award, and is probably the most well-known.
