Click here to take a peek at which of your favorite 2012 books made the cut. I'm happy to report that two books I nominated have been selected--Pinch and Dash Make Soup (Easy Reader category) and Lies, Knives, and Girls in Red Dresses (Poetry).
Naturally, the category I turn to first is Easy Readers/Early Chapter Books. This year I was especially interested in the finalists as I'll be one of the second round judges in the category. I'm happy to say I've reviewed a fair number of the finalists in the past year. To read a review click the title.
