Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

Below is a list of the Children Book Awards that have been awarded so far for 2009. All of the information came from the below website. If a book was listed more than once (winner in one category and honorable in another) I only listed it in the winning category: Children's Book Awards

You can also see the winners from 2002-2008 at the above website.

Please use this thread to post any personal reviews on the books!

Newberry Award Winners: This has been awarded annually by the American Library Association since 1922 "to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children." There is a medal winner and usually from one to five honor books.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Newberry Honor books:

The Underneath by Kathi Appelet

The Surrender Tree by Margarita Engle

Savvy by Ingrid Law

After Tupac and D Foster by Jacqueline Woodson

The Caldecott Medal: This has been awarded annually by the American Library Association since 1938 "to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children." Like the Newbery, there is one medal winner and usually a number of honor books.
