About this title
Each year, the Newbery and Caledcott Awards are awarded by the American Library Association to the most distinguished children's books published the previous year. With up-to-date annotations for all the medal and honor books since the inception of the awards (Newbery in 1922 and Caledcott in 1938), librarians and teachers everywhere have come to rely on this indispensable guide for quick-reference, collection and curriculum development, and readers' advisory. Fully indexed by title and author/illustrator the 2005 edition includes background on the awards and photos of the new medalists and their books. New to the 2005 edition is an essay ("Literature for Youth: A Means to the Endless") by expert storyteller and author Janice Del Negro. Placing a magnifying glass on the role of children's literature, Del Negro probes our ideal of what we want to give to children when we give them books and explores the role of the librarian in connecting children to books in meaningful ways. This provocative 2005 essay also: Examines the age-old debate between children's literature as art or as teaching tool Explores the question of why many children's books are so dark Emphasizes the balance that librarians need to strive for in order to become more discerning selectors of materials for children For all those professionals committed to introducing literature to young people, The Newbery Caldecott Awards, 2005 Edition is the indispensable guide.About the Author:
