The Youth Media Awards... Or the Oscars for Kid Lit

Last Monday, January 11, the Youth Media Awards were announced at the American Library Association's Midwinter conference.  The Newbery Medal, the Caldecott Medal and more were all announced.

Last Stop on Market Street by Matt De La Peña
Winner of the Newbery Medal
Caldecott Honor
Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor

Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear by Lindsay Mattick ; Illustrated by Sophie Blackall

Overall, I'm really pleased with these two and I can't wait to read them both!
