It's a very exciting time, especially when you hear the cheering from different sides of the floor when winners are announced (Yesterday there was quite the cake to be had at our celebration).
You can check out the winners here, but allow me to name the two super awards of the year:
The John Newbery Medal for the most outstanding contribution to children's literature:
Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos
The Randolph Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children:
A Ball for Daisy illustrated and written by Chris Raschka
Congrats to the authors and the publishing teams behind them!
