Book Awards Day - Newbery and Caldecott Winners!

The fabulous Kate DiCamillo (from neighboring Minnesota) is author of the popular Mercy Watson books and the previous Newbery Award winning story, The Tale of Despereaux.

Ms. DiCamillo has been selected as this year's Newbery Award winner for her book Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures.

Miranda said: "It's a really good book, I loved it"

The Caldecott Medal was awarded to: “Locomotive,” illustrated and written by Brian Floca

Caldecott Honor Books include “Journey,” written and illustrated by Aaron Becker

These are the only award wining titles from this year's announcement that  we have in our library at this time, but I am sure we will be adding to the collection now that the awards have been made.
