The American Library Association's Youth Media Awards were announced this morning, Monday, January 27th at 8 a.m. EST!
These awards include the Caldecott Medal (for distinguished illustrations), the Newbery Medal (for distinguished children's book writing), the Sibert Award (for distinguished non-fiction), and the Geisel (for distinguished books for beginning readers).
The Newbery Award went to two-time winner (and 2014 National Ambassador of Young People's Literature) Kate DiCamillo for her marvelously funny Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures. Darien Library favorite Doll Bones, by Holly Black, was one of four books to receive a Newbery Honor.
You can put the complete list of winners on hold, or stop by the Children's Library and see what's available!
