The winners of the Newbery, Caldecott, and several other children’s book awards were announced yesterday, which you can read about here:
Here are a few highlights (books that won multiple awards):
Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson (which already won the National Book Award) won the Coretta Scott King Award for author and was named a Newbery Honor Book and a Sibert Honor Book (the Sibert awards are for nonfiction). The library also owns this book as an audiobook on CD.
Viva Frida by Yuyi Morales won the Pura Belpré Illustrator Award as well as a Caldecott Honor.
The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus by Jen Bryant, illustrated by Melissa Sweet, won the Robert F. Sibert Informational Book Award as well as a Caldecott Honor.
Separate is Never Equal: Sylvia Mendez & Her Family’s Fight for Desegregation by Duncan Tonatiuh was a Belpré Illustrator Honor Book and a Sibert Honor Book. This title is also available as an audiobook on CD and has been adapted to DVD.
There, I think that’s all the ones that overlapped! I plan to share more about the list of the award winners in the coming days.
