The Randolph Caldecott Medal and the John Newbery Medal are book awards given out annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association (ALA). According to the ALA, the Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott and is awarded to “the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children,” while the Newbery Medal, the very first children’s book award, was named for the eighteenth-century English bookseller John Newbery and is given to “the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children” (www.ala.org)

According to Roger Farr, Ed.D., motivation to read is the result of the interaction of three conditions: (1) a student’s interests and experiences, (2) a book or article that matches those needs and interests, and (3) a student’s success in reading. The task is to bring those three conditions together. It is not an easy task to accomplish but it is not only possible, it is accomplished by successful teachers all the time as the reading lists in this report suggest.
