Dayton Metro Children's Librarians Select Mock Newbery & Caldecott Winners

Many have seen the gold and silver medals affixed to children’s books but few really know what they mean or who selects which books receive medals. Every year the American Library Association (ALA) awards the prestigious Caldecott and Newbery medals for distinguished illustrations and writing in children's literature.  The Randolph Caldecott Medal, established in 1937, recognizes distinguished illustrations in an American picture book.  The John Newbery Medal, established in 1922, is awarded to an author with the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.  Children, parents, care givers, and teachers can be assured that a Newbery or Caldecott book is top quality.

Prior to the actual awarding of the medals in January, the children’s librarians from all of Dayton Metro Library meet in December to hold their own Mock Newbery/Caldecott discussions and select the most distinguished books for children. This year the children’s librarians selected the following 2013 titles as their choices for this year’s awards.
