And the winner is...

Well, we nominated, debated, pulled out the dictionary, and ate some donuts.  Then we voted!  And were completely deadlocked.  We hemmed and hawed a bit, but are proud to announce that we selected winner:

Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet

and honor book:

The House That Baba Built by Ed Young

Our group decided that both of these books are incredible examples of a "distinguished informational book for children."   Just a few more weeks until we learn what the committee's pick may be!

Huzzah!! Balloons Over Broadway was one of my favorite books of the year and I hope to see awards heaped upon it in a couple of weeks. :D
