Award winners announced!

On January 18, the Newbery and Caldecott Award winners were announced. These awards are given out once a year to the best chapter book (Newbery) and best illustrations (Caldecott). The winners for 2010 are:

Newbery Award: When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. This is a mystery/science fiction novel in one. Those of you who read this blog regularly will note that I reviewed this book and wasn't too thrilled with it, but it is a great read for you science fiction fans.

Caldecott Award: Jerry Pinkney's The Lion and the Mouse. This is a wordless retelling of Aesop's beloved fable.

More infomation can be found at the American Library Association's website.
