Most of us grew up with some knowledge of the Newbery and Caldecott Awards. (Who could miss the shiny metal stickers on the book covers!) But that doesn’t mean as children that we understood the meaning and background of these prestigious awards. If you’d like to know more now, to pass on to your students, join me and my guest, Kelly Howe—a Newbery/Caldecott collector and enthusiast—for an inside look at award winners and more. We’ll both share some of our favorites with the hope of stirring your love for quality children’s literature. As a bonus, I’m offering a free PDF, “The Mystery of History Guide to Newbery Medal Winners.”
