...and the winners are...!

Today the American Library Association announced the winners of this year's Newbery and Caldecott Medals!

Rebecca Stead's When You Reach Me, one of the most startlingly clever and deeply moving works of juvenile fiction I've read in a long time, won the coveted Newbery Medal.

Celebrated artist Jerry Pinkney won yet another well-deserved Caldecott for his The Lion and the Mouse, a gorgeous adaptation of the fable from Aesop.

You can also check out lists of winners of other ALA awards, such as ones for non-fiction, easy readers, books in translation, and so on. These prestigious awards mark some of the finest children's literature being published today.
