Best Books for Kids: Carnegie Medal Winners
I had to look up the Carnegie Medal in Literature Award in Wikipedia. It’s another version of the Newbery with an accompanying award, the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration, aping the Caldecott. It’s all good to me but surprisingly, there is not a ton of overlap between the Newbery /Carnegie or the Caldecott/Kate Greenaway. There are plenty of great books out there that deserve awards so please check out this list if you are searching for more great books!
