SB&F Prize Kids' Choice Award
Welcome to the SB&F Editor's Blog. I am Maria Sosa, Editor-in-Chief of SB&F. Through this blog I hope to interact with the SB&F community and post news and information related to science books, videos, authors, opportunities and other topics of interest to our readers. I hope you find the blog useful and entertaining. Please, join the conversation by posting a comment on our Facebook page. I'd love to hear from you!


In case you missed it, the 2011 SB&F Prize finalists have been announced. Right now our judges are reading over this year's finalists to choose a winner in each category. Winners will be announced in January and honored at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, DC in February. This year, with extra support from Subaru, we are working with DC area school children to choose a Kids' Choice Award winner in two of the categories (Children's Science Picture Book and Middle Grades Science Book). Over 500 children from area schools are reading the books, discussing them in class, and voting for their favorite. The Kids' Choice winner in each category will be announced at the AAAS Annual Meeting in February. Children participating in the program will be invited to attend Family Science Days, a free, family-friendly event the meeting. Stay tuned! It will be interesting to see if the official SB&F Prize judges and the children participating in the Kids' Choice Award choose the same book....or not!
