The winners of the 2016 Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, Coretta Scott King and other prestigious youth media awards were announced Monday morning by the American Library Association.

Matt de la Peña is the first Latino author to win the Newbery Medal for outstanding contribution to children's literature for his book "Last Stop on Market Street," illustrated by Christian Robinson.

The book tells the story of CJ's bus ride with his grandma, the child noting the economic differences he sees along the way and Grandma teaching him to appreciate what he has in his life and throughout the city.

The Caldecott Medal went to "Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear," illustrated by Sophie Blackall and written by Lindsay Mattick. The book tells the real-life story of a World War I veterinarian who rescued a bear and named it Winnie, who eventually became the inspiration for the fictional Winnie-the-Pooh.

Wow, MaryJane, this is really interesting! I need to check out these new books too. I never knew the history behind the Winnie the Pooh series and you know how I love turn of the century American history! I will definitely look these two award books up.

We own a book regarding the true Winnie story :) It is delightful! And we loved learning the history behind it! Our family thrives on history, it seems!

Wow, how fun is the name coincidence! I've been a fan of Newbery Award books since my daughter was in elementary grades. That's a l-o-n-g time ago. Thanks, Mary Jane!

Happy Day!
