All Aboard the Award Train!

The Texas Book Festival Celebrates the well-deserved win of our featured Festival and Reading Rock Star author/illustrator Brian Floca. Festival fans showed up in masses for his events at the 2013 Festival and our Reading Rock Star kids enjoyed his visit to their school. The Association for Library Service to Children named Brian Floca recipient of the 2014 Caldecott Award for his book Locomotive. The visually-stunning book takes readers on a west-bound locomotive journey. Adding to his collection of awards, Locomotive also received a 2014 Robert F. Sibert Honor. Locomotive joins Floca’s other Robert F. Sibert Honor books Lightship, Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11,  and Ballet for Martha: Making Appalachian Spring. Congratulations Brian Floca!
