Caldecott and Newbery Medal Winners

The word is in on the Caldecott and Newbery Medal Winners for 2006! Hello, Goodbye Window by Norton Juster, illustrated by Chris Raschka won the Caldecott Award. In this loving story vibrant swirls of color and simple, elegant text capture the child's eye view of sweet moments with Nanna and Poppy. This year's Newbery Winner is Criss Cross by Lynne Rae Perkins, a 1960's teen story that is filled with poetry, haiku and fascinating characters trying to find their place in the world.
