I'd like to congratulate the Kidlitosphere's own Mindy on the birth of her new daughter, aka Little Miss Ladybug. We're all so happy for you, Mindy! I would also like to point out that Mindy valiantly spent time reading for the Cybils MG/YA nonfiction nominating committee during the last days of her pregnancy, and is already back on board with discussions. We are very fortunate to have her on the committee. And Little Miss Ladybug is a very lucky girl to have a mother who is so well-versed in children's books. You can read more at Mindy's baby blog, Due in December.
