15 Award-Winning Children’s Books That Deserve Their Recognition


There are a handful of different awards a children’s book may win such as the John Newbery Medal, the Caldecott Medal (or Honor), the Coretta Scott King Award, the Sibert Medal, the Pura Belpré Award, and the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, to name a few. These are just the major award-winning children’s books, too, because there are hundreds of prestigious lists and recognitions that can also help separate the best books from the many other great ones that are released every year. Thankfully, these award-winning children’s books are usually pretty easy to identify because they often feature some kind of graphic or medallion on the cover to indicate which award(s) they’ve won.

Still, clicking through a bunch of books trying to locate a little graphic on a cover can be tedious, so to help you out I’ve gathered a list of some of the best award-winning children’s books out there. Whether you’re looking for something heart-warming, silly, or with a good life-lesson, you’ll find it here.
