A New ALA Award for Children's Poetry??? What Do You Think?

At Wild Rose Reader today, I have Children’s Poetry and the Cinderella Syndrome—which I originally posted at Blue Rose Girls in October of 2006 before I became a regular contributor to this blog. I was inspired to re-post my two-part article after reading Betsy Bird’s Baby Wants Another New Award: Poetry Time!—in which she discusses the idea of a new ALA/ALSC award for children's poetry. A number of people—including some children’s poets—have left comments about the poetry award at Betsy’s post at the School Library Journal site.

I thought it might be a good idea to continue the discussion of an ALA/ALSC award for children’s poetry—and to find out people’s opinions on the subject. Do you think a new award for children's poetry would be a good idea? Let us know what YOU think. You can leave comments at Children's Poetry and the Cinderella Syndrome or at Baby Wants Another New Award: Poetry Time!
