Children’s Book Awards

Last week the American Library Association (ALA) announced their children’s book awards, so I decided to share some of the award winning books during the 1st and 2nd grade library programs. I decided to read them Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli, which won the Geisel award for best beginning reader.  I also shared with them Locomotive by Brian Flocca, which won the Caldecott Medal Winner for best picture book and Mr. Wuffles by David Wiesner , which was one of the books that won the Caldecott Honor Award.  I talked about what each of the awards were and how you can find them in the library.  I put stickers on the side of the books so they can see them when they are on the book shelves.  This week I pulled many of them and put them in a special display to make it easy for them to find.  I also put up a display of the Newbery Award winning books for the older grades.  The award winning books can also be found by searching the library catalog by the award name.

To see all the award winning books, go to ALA Award Books
