Some award winning books are great and some are not but I think you'll like this one - The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. It just won the Newbery Award! It's about a gorilla who lives in a shopping mall. A picture book for older kids won The Randolph Caldecott Medal. It's title is This Is not My Hat by J. Klassen. It's sly and funny. For more award winners go to the Kids' World website.
We all know that; and yet we want to read the one that won. This is especially true of the Newbery Award, but we should remember that several other books also make the cut into this inner circle. They are the Newbery Honor books- also distinguished. They just didn't win the gold.
Why do I make a point of telling you this? Because the winner of the Newbery Award for 1953 was Secret of the Andes. Guess which title was only a Newbery Honor book? Charlotte's Web. Enough said.
