Much anticipated by many librarians (and hopefully other adults, and dare I say, children?), the American Library Association announced its version of the Golden Globes and Oscars.

These include the Newbery and Caldecott winners, probably the most well known of the awards. Actually, though, my favorite awards are the Giesel (for humor) and the Sibert (for non-fiction). So here are those four winners:

  • Newbery: When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
  • Caldecott: The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney
  • Sibert: Almost Astronauts: Thirteen Women Who Dared to Dream by Tanya Lee Stone
  • Geisel: Benny and Penny in the Big No-No! by Geoffrey Hayes

And to brag a bit, I did pretty well this year.  We’ve got most of the winners in the collection at Southern Peaks already. 🙂

Happy reading,
