The day has finally arrived for the announcement of the 2014 Youth Media Awards. These are the highest honors for authors and illustrators of children’s and young adult literature, and are given each year by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association.

I am in the room as the awards are being announced, and here are the two top Medal winners:
2014 Caldecott Award: Locomotive, written and illustrated by Brian Floca.
2014 John Newbery Medal: Flora & Ulysses, written by Kate DiCamillo, and illustrated by K. G. Campbell.
