SLJ’s Battle of the (Kids’) Books Begins with a Bang

Call off all bets. Children’s book ambassador Jon Scieszka left little doubt that School Library Journal’s first annual Battle of the (Kids’) Books won’t be business as usual.

To learn more about Scieszka’s decision, visit SLJ’s Battle of the (Kids’) Books blog.
