They Picked Who to Win What?!?

Perhaps you have a personal vendetta against Mo Willems. Maybe Melina Marchetta’s Jellicoe Road gives you the hives. Or maybe you’re the one person left on the planet not totally in love with Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. Whatever the reason, it’s hard not to have fun second-guessing the ALA Youth Media Awards. That’s why this video by American’s Libraries‘ Greg Landgraf is so great: it gives you a glimpse into some of the reasoning behind all that awarding. It’s just enough to get you and your coworkers bickering all over again.
