2015 CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD SEASON
Soon the Newberry, the Caldecott, Pura Belpre, Coretta Scott King and many more awards will be given out to the best in children's books of the previous year. The speculations as to which book will win which award is usually a secret until the winners are called. So below are a list of titles which are being talked about and they have been read and reviewed by our Children's Services staff.
For the Caldecott, Migrant is an unusually illustrated bilingual story which deserves to win, but it's a long shot because it is so unusual.
These children's fiction titles are some favored to win the Newberry this year: The Fourteenth Goldfish about a grandfather who found a way to become 13 again is a rumored favorite to be the 2015 Newberry winner. The Night Gardener, and Rain Reign about a girl with Asperger's in search of her missing dog have also been getting some Newberry buzz. Will your favorite story win?
