Today was a big day in libraries. The prestigious Youth Media Award Winners were announced this morning. The Newbery winner is The One and Only Ivan
by Katherine Applegate.and This Is Not My Hat
by Jon Klassen won the Randolph Caldecott Medal. Earlier in the month Kids' World staff held our own Mock Newbery/Caldecott contest. The 2 books we chose as winners were Wonder
by R.J. Palacio for the Newbery and Oh No!
by Candace Fleming for the Randolph Caldecott Medal. Both of the actual winners came in second for our mock vote. The important thing is not the ranking - it's that we all care about quality literature for our kids - you as parents and teachers and we as librarians. Here's a list
of the other medals and winners presented today. We'd love to hear what you think!
