AWARDS FOR CHILDREN BOOKS

Children books may have what looks like a medal on the front cover denoting that it is an award-winning children's book.  Two of these awards are explained below.

THE CALDECOTT MEDAL

The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children.

THE NEWBERRY MEDAL

The Newbery Medal was named for eighteenth-century British bookseller John Newbery. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.

To learn about more about these two awards or information about other awards, please visit this website for details.
