Week 16 #PictYourBooks Challenge

Last Monday the American Library Association announced the 2020 winners for a bunch of awards. Two of the most famous are the Newbery Medal and the Caldecott Medal. The Newbery is awarded to the year's best book for children, and the Caldecott is given to the children's book with the best illustrations. Another award that I really like is the Geisel Award which is given to the best book for beginning readers. Here are the 2020 winners:

2020 Newbery Medal
2020 Caldecott Medal
2020 Geisel Award

These awards have been given for many years. In addition there are honor books which are sort of like runners up for the awards. So there are a lot of award winning books out there, and most of them have a medal on the cover showing the award it has won. Which finally brings us to this week's challenge:

Challenge #16: Share an award winning book that you really liked.

Please don't share just any book with a medal on the cover. It has to be one that you really liked, and I can't wait to see all your favorite award winners.

You have one week to submit your answer. Answers can be submitted three ways. Snap a picture of any book that answers the challenge and:
Please include the week number with your picture. You may also include who the image is from, like a teacher's name, and a description of how the book answers the challenge. Writing information on a sticky note and including it in the picture works great!
