Ok so I have to acknowledge how well I did on the Newbery Award pick! (Not so great on the Caldecott, I know). The two books I highlighted for the Newbery actually won! The One and Only Ivan took the award, but Three Times Lucky came in as an honor book! So excited. I'll give you a full review after we finish it - a few chapters left.
Here's a link to the official announcements if you haven't seen:
Let's talk about 2 other awards though:
The Laura Ingalls Wilder Award honors an author or
illustrator whose books "have made a substantial and lasting contribution to literature
for children". The 2013 winner is Katherine Paterson! Here's a favorite of mine from back in the day:
The Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for the most distinguished beginning reader book went to “Up, Tall and High!” written and illustrated by Ethan Long.
Bad me! Have to order it! But looks great!
