I had to look up the Carnegie Medal in Literature Award in Wikipedia. It’s another version of the Newbery with 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 and Carnegie s well as the Caldecott and Kate Greenaway. There are plenty of great books out there that deserve awards!
I found this great site called Africa Access, founded in 1989, to help schools, public libraries, and parents improve the quality of their children’s collection on Africa. Africa Access Review, our online database, contains over 1000 annotations and reviews of children’s books written by university professors, librarians, and teachers most of whom have lived in Africa and have graduate degrees in African Studies. Their award, Children’s Africana Book Awards has presented more than forty awards since 1992. These are the winners for 2010 with reviews by Africa Access.
