Moonbird Honored at ALA

Phillip Hoose and “his mates” at FSG are honored by the attention Moonbird received from ALSC and YALSA at the recent American Libraries Association meeting in Seattle.

The book about the great survivor B95 was a finalist for the the YALSA Award for Excellence in Non-Fiction and received a Sibert Honor.

The Robert F. Sibert Informational Book Medal is awarded annually to the author(s) and illustrator(s) of the most distinguished informational book published in the United States in English during the preceding year. The award is named in honor of Robert F. Sibert, the long-time President of Bound to Stay Bound Books, Inc. of Jacksonville, Illinois. ALSC administers the award.

Congratulations to all the incredible books that received recognition at the 2013 Youth Media Awards.
