A newsletter for LMES teachers, parents, and students
The ALA Youth Media Awards will be announced the morning of Jan. 28. The ALA Youth Media Awards honor children’s and young adult authors and illustrators, as well as producers of children’s audio and video materials. We'll discover the winners of the coveted Newbery Medal (awarded to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children), the Caldecott Medal (awarded to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children), and the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award (awarded to the most distinguished American book for beginning readers). Stay tuned for these to be published in the February newsletter or you can find the results here once they are announced! For past Newbery winners visit here, for past Caldecott winners visit here, and for past Geisel winners visit here.
