NEWS: Lots of Poets on SLJ’s Best of 2011 List

Congratulations to poets Arnold Adoff, Lee Wardlaw, Kristine O’Connell George, Joyce Sidman, Thanhha Lai, and the late Shel Silverstein (and the other authors and artists) for their books making School Library Journal‘s Best Books of 2011!

P.S. One poet who was not included but deserves to be recognized is US children’s poet laureate and newest NCTE awardee J. Patrick Lewis. Sylvia Vardell and her students have created a useful digital “toolbox” for teachers and students of Lewis’s growing oeuvre.
