Last night the American Library Association presented its Youth Media Awards, the most famous of which are the Newbery Medal and the Caldecott Medal. See the full list of winners at this link. I am delighted that the current selection for the 5th-grade book club, The War that Saved My Life, received a Newbery Honor!

Hello, Universe, by Erin Entrada Kelly
