Awards Excitement!

The American Library Association has announced their choices for the best books for children and teens published last year. The most famous of these awards are the Caldecott Medal, given to the best-illustrated children's book, and the Newbery Medal, given to the best-written children's books. The 2013 Caldecott Medal was awarded to "This Is Not My Hat", written and illustrated by Jon Klassen, while the 2013 Newbery Medal was awarded to "The One and Only Ivan", written by Katherine Applegate. Here's a closer look at these two award-winning books: 2013 Caldecott and Newbery Medal winners
