The American Booksellers Association recently announced the winners of the 2011 E.B. White Read-Aloud Awards. In the picture book category, the winner was Children Make Terrible Pets, by our own Peter Brown — whose The Curious Garden was the winner last year. (Can the Peter Brown Award be far behind?) Among the Honor Books in the Picture Book category is Bedtime for Bear, by Brett Helquist. Details about the award are here. You can read more about Peter at his web site, here, and Brett at his web site, here. Congratulations to them both!
