And the Winner is...

Earlier this month we voted for our favorite SC Award Nominee Picture Book. Over 200 votes were cast. The first place winner for CRES is The Amazing Secrets of Awesome Man, by Michael Chabon. Coming in a very close second place was Chopsticks, by Amy Kraus Rosenthal. The picture book winner for SC is Pete the Cat: Rocking in my School Shoes, by Eric Litwin.
