Winners of 2019 Book Awards

The 2019 Caldecott Medal was awarded to Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall.

  • "Masterful ink and watercolor illustrations illuminate the story of a lighthouse and the family inside. Stunning images of the lighthouse in all kinds of weather alternate with views of intimate interior detail and circular motifs. Blackall’s skill with composition, line and close attention to detail have created an exquisite book." (American Library Association)

The 2019 Newbery Medal was awarded to Merci Suárez Changes Gears by Meg Medina.

  • "Using humor and grace, Merci, a charming and plucky protagonist, cycles through life’s challenges with the support of her intergenerational family. This richly nuanced novel tackles the complexity of navigating a multicultural identity amidst changing family dynamics." (American Library Association)

The 2019 Geisel Award was awarded to Fox the Tiger by Corey R. Tabor.

  • "Tigers are the best, or so thinks Fox. With a big imagination (and a little bit of paint), he transforms into a growling, prowling tiger. Soon his friends Turtle and Rabbit are likewise inspired to embody their dreams as a zipping, zooming race car and a beeping, booping robot. Despite their rained-out celebration, Fox learns to appreciate that he, in his own special way, is also the best." (American Library Association)

Congratulations to the winners! Come to the Bacich Library to check out these award-winning books!
