The room was crowded with teachers. Eureka! Award judges Lynda Griblin, Dr. Virginia Loh-Hagan and Lynn Gurnee pulled books out of boxes to display. They were about to announce the winners of the California Reading Association's 2104 Eureka! Nonfiction Children's Book Award. As I found a spot, there was a small buzz in the front of the room. "She's here! Where is it?" a judge whispered. Suddenly, all three judges pointed to me. "Did you know?" asked Lynda Griblin. "You won a Eureka! Honor Award." She held the book up high, the silver sticker catching the light. They beamed. I beamed. What a thrill to find out, there among teacher friends, about this and to also find out about other colleagues' books that were among the winners. Here's to CRA for recognizing the importance of nonfiction in the reading lives of children!
