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 pair of posts on some great blogs and the dicotomy of boys versus girls made me want to post them both. I have not read all these books, but these lists make me want to! Thank you MustLoveBooks and ConsumedByBooks!
