On the morning of February 2nd I received a phone call from a room of cheering Caldecott committee members, telling me that my book NANA IN THE CITY had won a Caldecott Honor. Wow. Whoa. Oh my gosh.
Just a few of the many emotions I've felt these last several weeks.
I am truly humbled.
To know that the committee saw something special in my little book just blows me away. I cannot wait to thank them in person and accept the award at the annual ALA conference in San Fransisco this June.
For now, here's a little Times Square marquee thank you. ♡♡♡
