The 2014 Newbery and Caldecott Medals have been announced, along with the winners and honors recipients for all of the many other awards the American Library Association gives out each year.

Award winners for younger readers:


Award winners for older readers:

The 2014 award winners and honors were announced this morning at the ALA Midwinder Meeting. Awards given include the well-known Newbery and Caldecott medals as well as many others. You might recognize the stickers for the Coretta Scott King awards, which are given for illustration, writing, new talent and lifetime achievement. You might not recognize the stickers for the Batchelder Award for children's books originally written in a language other than English, or the Schneider Family Book Award for books about the disability experience, but those books can be found on our shelves! Amongst the winners and honors are books for children of all ages as well as teens.

For some suggestions from this year's winners and honors books for children, take a look at the lists to the right. Some of the nonfiction titles on the list for older readers were winners of an award for young adults, but the books themselves aren't just for teens.

To learn more about the many awards the American Library Association gives out, please take a look at their awards page here. You can also find lists of all past winners, in some cases going back many decades. If you'd like to see what Newbery and Caldecott winners we own here, take a look at these lists here.
