2016 SCBWI Crystal Kite Awards Announced

The SCBWI announced the winners of the 2016 Crystal Kite Member Choice Awards for fifteen regional divisions:

I always love to see which books are chosen from each region of SCBWI for this award. This year, the book chosen from my region (the Mid South) is:  “Secret Files World War II, by Stephanie Bearce.  I had the opportunity to meet Stephanie earlier this year at a SCBWI workshop. She talked to us about the joys of writing non-fiction for children.

See ALL the chosen books for 2016 on the SCBWI website.
