Awards Season: Highlights from the Youth Media Awards

Golden Globes. Oscars. Grammys. Awards season is upon us, folks!

While I love seeing celebrities walk the red carpet and discussing the best movies and music of the year with friends, family, and co-workers, the awards ceremony that I most look forward  to is the Youth Media Awards at the American Library Association’s Midwinter Conference.

The YMAs include the Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, and Morris awards, just to name a few. Each award seeks to highlight the best in books published for children and young adults during the previous year. The full list of honored titles can be found here, but I wanted to share some of my favorites from what I’ve read over the past year.
