ALA Youth Media Awards will be Announced on February 2, 2015 The awards ceremony will be broadcast at 8:00 a.m. CT on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015, during the ALA Midwinter Meeting & Exhibition in Chicago.  You can join them live via your computer if you have the time.  Go here to find the link to join their live webcast.  If you prefer, you can follow I Love Libraries on Twitter and Facebook instead.  I will be clicking on the “webcast” link hoping I can be added to the many people joining via the Internet.  If you click the link now, you will see a countdown clock for the event. I will send out the list of winners and honor books as soon as I receive the press release, so if you are unable to attend you will still learn about the awards not long after the video announcements. JenkinsCreature Features: Twenty-Five Animals Explain Why They Look the Way They Do by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page.  Their newest title looks at 25 animals with unusual features and explains why they have them.  For example, the leaf-nosed bat uses its unusual nose to direct sounds to its ears.  Art dominates each page with a brief question and answer, readers will be intrigued.  The art always shows the animals head and face from the front, and not much of the rest of their bodies.  Readers may be curious enough to go looking for complete photos or illustrations of the named creatures.  This title is great for preschool through second grade. (The Nebraska Library Commission receives free copies of children’s and young adult books for review from a number of publishers.  After review, the books are distributed free, via the Regional Library Systems, to Nebraska school and public libraries.)
