Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award!

Wahoo!! How To by Julie Morstad is the winner of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award for 2014!

And... Wild Berries by Julie Flett is an honor book! We are so so proud of our authors/illustrators!
As the jury says: "How To is intelligent. It is a book that is raucous and quiet, active and contemplative, child-focused and ageless. It presents a unique perspective on “seeing” things and opens up all sorts of possibilities."
