Moonshot is a Sibert Honor Book
The annual wave of ALA awards hit shore this morning, and I am happy and honored that Moonshot is a Robert F. Sibert Honor Book. The book is in excellent company: Almost Astronauts: 13 Women Who Dared to Dream, by Tanya Lee Stone, is the Sibert Medal winner. The Day-Glo Brothers: The True Story of Bob and Joe Switzer’s Bright Ideas and Brand-New Colors, written by Chris Barton, illustrated by Tony Persiani, and Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice, by Phillip Hoose, are the other Honor Selections. The ALA press release is here. Thank you to this year’s Robert F. Sibert committee!
