Each year the Children’s Book Committee at the Bank Street College of Education gives the Flora Stieglitz Straus Award “for a nonfiction book that serves as an inspiration to young readers.” Usually one award is given, but two books written for different ages can also both receive the award. This year, I’m happy to say, Moonshot has received the award for younger readers, with Almost Astronauts, by Tanya Lee Stone, receiving the award for older readers. That’s great news! Thank you to the Children’s Book Committee at Bank Street!
