Newbery & Caldecott Awards

Visiting the library while growing up, I remember seeing books in the children’s area with silver and gold Newbery and Caldecott Medals on them. I knew those books were extra special, awarded by the American Library Association as being the best of the best in written (Newbery) and illustrated (Caldecott) children’s books. In January, the 2014 book winners were released. “Flora & Ulysses” by Kate DiCamillo, won the Newbery medal. The Caldecott Award for the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children went to “Locomotive” by Brian Floca. The Theodor Seuss Geisel award-winning book is “Watermelon Seed” by Greg Pizzoli. Each of the award winning books is available at the library as well as many of the past winners.
