Youth Literature Award Winners

Need to find award-winning books? This guide will help you find winners and honor books for many prominent youth literature awards in the UNI Youth Collection.

Guide Details

This LibGuide provides lists of books that have won many of the major American awards for children's and young adult literature. Winners are organized by award year going back to 1996. There are also comprehensive lists of all the books recognized by the Newbery, Caldecott, and Coretta Scott King awards committees, as well as the annual New York Times Best Illustrated list.

Books are linked to UNI Rod Library catalog; click on the title or picture to see whether a book is currently available. Books not cataloged in the Youth Collection inventory are marked "Request from Interlibrary Loan"--we do not have a copy on-site, but we can likely borrow one for you through Interlibrary Loan

If you have questions or are looking for further information on specific awards, please contact the Youth Services Librarian.
