Congratulations to the 2017 Charlotte Huck Award for Outstanding Fiction for Children Winners!

I am not at #NCTE16, but I have been following the tweets from the comfort of my living room. Yesterday afternoon, the winners of the Charlotte Huck Award for Outstanding Fiction for Children were announced. The award was established to "promote and recognize fiction that has the potential to transform children's lives by inviting compassion, imagination, and wonder."
