Yesterday was a massive day for US children’s and YA literature prizes - so let’s all celebrate this year’s winners of the 2016 Newbery medal, Caldecott illustration medal (awarded by the the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC)) and the Printz award for YA lit (awarded by the Young Adult Library Service (YALSA). Both award giving groups are part of the American Library Association and it’s a VERY big deal to win.
