MY TWO CENTS: This is so exciting! We had a lot of non-fiction books on tour, and I read a lot of them -- but only two of these six that made the final cut. The Rebirth of Hope, Sau Le Hudecek's story of her immigration that brought her from Vietnam to my home town of Fort Worth, was an amazing story of bravery, strength, determination, and perseverance. I remember that when I was reading it, I would frequently stop to share a story with one of my kids or husband. She never gave up. Never stopped working for her goals. Never let anything stop her in a time and place where the barriers were plentiful. Incredible. And Yonderings is a completely different kind of incredible. Author Ben English transported me to Big Bend, Texas of old and shared his discoveries and reflections and recollections of his life and lessons. Practical in its tips, magical in its descriptions, I still feel the book and the place tugging at me. For the other winning titles, we had terrific special features that gave me a connection to the books an pique my interest still.
