On Monday, January 23rd, the American Library Association announced the winner and honors books of the 2012 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award. This is the third of a series of posts on this year's ALA award winning children's books. The first post was on the 2012 Newbery Medal Winner and the second post was on the 2012 Caldecott Medal Winner.

The Theodor Seuss Geisel Award is given annually to the author(s) and / or illustrator(s) with the most outstanding contribution of beginner reading books in American Literature.  Mr. Geisel, also knows as Dr. Seuss, is most noteably known for creating easy to read books such as The Cat and the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham.

The 2012 Geisel Award winner is Tales for Very Picky Eaters written and illustrated by Josh Schneider.

In 2012, there were three Geisel honors books:  I Broke My Trunk by Mo Willems (an elephant and piggie book), I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen, and See Me Run by Paul Meisel.

There are many other Children's Book Awards given throughout the year in the United States. Most are given through the first half of the year.
