Global poetry on the NBGS list

Karen Hildebrand, Chair of the 2012 Notable Books for a Global Society award committee, just gave me the heads up on their latest list which includes several poetry books among the 25 winners.

Requiem - Paul B. Janeczko
Roots and Blues
- Arnold Adoff

Peaceful Pieces
- Anna Grossnickle Hines

Inside Out & Back Again
- Thanhha Lai

Under the Mesquite
- Guadalupe Garcia McCall

Never Forgotten
- Patricia C. McKissack

Alicia Alonso; Prima Ballerina
- Carmen T. Bernier-Grand

FYI: Annually, a committee of the CL/R SIG (Children’s Literature and Reading Special Interest Group) of the International Reading Association selects 25 outstanding trade books for enhancing student understanding of people and cultures throughout the world. The committee reviews books representing all genres intended for students K-12. The new list for 2012 should be posted here soon.
