Each year the Newbery and Caldecott Medals are awarded by the American Library Association for the most distinguished American children's books published the previous year. This 2001 edition of the Newbery and Caldecott Awards guide celebrates the latest medal and honor books along with all those that came before. The first chapter presents the authorization and terms of the Awards, and the second chapter includes reflections and thoughts of the 2000 Newbery Award Selection Committee. The next section gives the Newbery Award and honor books, providing descriptions of the Award-winning and honor titles for each year, beginning with the year 2001 and ending with the year 1922. The Caldecott Award winners and honors are then given, beginning with the year 2001 and ending with the year 1938. A final section, a work-in-progress, attempts to list the media used to create illustrations in the Caldecott Award and honor books, beginning with the year 1938 and ending with the year 2001.
