Celebrating Jon Scieszka

We would be remiss if we didn't join the chorus of thanks to our first National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, Jon Scieszka, as he finishes out his last day at the post. Tomorrow a new ambassador is announced, but today, the kidlitosphere thanks him for his superhuman efforts on behalf of young readers everywhere.

Check out the the roundup of thank-you posts over on A Year of Reading, collected by Cybil-ites Franki and Mary Lee. There's been an outpouring of love in the comments, too–don't miss it!
