If you’re a kidlit nerd like me, you know who the SLJ BoB winner is: Marching for Freedom by Elizabeth Partridge, by all accounts an incredible non-fiction title. That I haven’t read despite making an effort to get my hands on it. Oops. It looks very serious, and I’ve heard it’s very moving. Perhaps my favorite review can be found here, on Emily Reads. In the SLJ BoB commentary, Katherine Paterson said it “stirred her soul.” I’ll admit she’s probably right and move on to talking about books I have read. Sorry Marching for Freedom! I’ll get to you some day.
