Award season doesn't only exist in Hollywood these days. The American Library Association just announced the winners of the most prestigious children's book honors, naming the 2013 John Newbery Medal and the Randolph Caldecott Medal Award winners, as well as the recipients of several other distinguished awards — making your next visit to the library a bit more exciting. The honorees represent the best books — both written and illustrated — for younger tots. So go ahead and start reserving these medal-winners today, and your well-worn version of Where the Wild Things Are (the 1964 Caldecott Medal winner) will thank you for the break!
