Walt Whitman: Words for America
Winner Description: 
written by Barbara Kerley, illustrated by Brian Selznick (Scholastic Press/Scholastic Inc.)
Winner Blurb: 

Kerley's lyrical prose portrait of Whitman captures the remarkable humanity and compassion of this quintessentially American poet, while Selznick's evocative art, inspired by period photographs, breathes visual life into this moving tribute.  This memorable account of Whitman's experience before and during the Civil War is brilliantly supported by the poet's own words, as well as contemporary and later sources.
