The Caldecott and Newbery Medal winners are due to be announced very soon- possibly even by tomorrow morning. Since the focus of my blog is picture books, there is a page in the sidebar showcasing the complete list of past Caldecott winners. Soon I’ll be adding a new title to the list. Who knows, maybe a book I’ve reviewed here on Frog On A Blog will take home the award. I’m looking forward to finding out. In the meantime, I suggest checking out some of the past winners. Then come back and tell me if you agree with the judges or if you think another book should have won that year.
For more information about both the Caldecott and Newbery awards, follow this American Library Association (ALA) link: http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alsc/awardsgrants/bookmedia/index.cfm. You will find all of the winners and honor books (runners-up) listed on this site as well as information about other notable children’s book awards.
