KidLit Con 2015

IMG_8166We’re enjoying an energetic and inspired get-together of bloggers who talk about books for kids.  You can follow it on Twitter at #kidlitcon. Lots of smart and funny people offering discussions on a range of issues including visual storytelling, horror, teamwork, and national literary awards for titles targeting youth.

To give you a small taste, here’s our own quick tutorial regarding youth media awards: how to use them, as a librarian, parent, teacher, or other reading and recommending consumer. It comes down to be using your evaluation skills about the awards’ purposes, sponsorship, eligibility pool,and group dynamics of committee work. Please add your own suggestions and remarks for making award use wise and helpful!
