The Golden Kite Award, first given by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators in 1973, is one of the most prestigious awards given by the industry.

This year Mara Rockliff’s beautiful book, Me and Momma and Big John (illustrated by William Low), took home the prize for picture book text. Me and Momma and Big John was also selected a Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book.

A few months back, I had the privilege of catching up with both Mara and William Low for a reading of their book at Bank Street Bookstore. https://robinnewmanbooks.wordpress.com/2012/12/19/an-afternoon-at-bank-street-bookstore-with-mara-rockliff-and-william-low/
