Congratulations to the Winners of the 2012 Children's Choice Book Awards!


I spent last night wishing I were at the 5th Annual Children's Choice Book Awards Gala. It would have been the perfect location to film my 1937 Newbery Challenge video. I picture myself roller skating down West 42nd Street. On my right shoulder rests a huge boombox blaring music from the musical Xanadu.


Okay, stop daydreaming. Focus, Mr. Schu. Focus.
