This week, we will be talking about the upcoming Caldecott and Newbery Awards. These are two of the awards given by the American Library Association (ALA) for the most distinguished illustrated and written books in children’s literature for the current year. The medal and honor winners will be announced on Monday, January 11th.

We are looking at a few possible Caldecott contenders that have gotten some good “buzz” this year so far and I will be sharing some more, along with Newbery titles, the week that we come back from the Christmas break. Once I know the winners, I will bring those books in to share with the students and we will discuss why we think those particular titles were awarded.
