The Carnegie And Greenaway Medals

December 26, 2006

The Carnegie medal (named for Scottish-born Andrew Carnegie) is the British equivalent of our Newberry Award–given annually to the writer of an exceptional children’s book. The Greenaway Medal, named after Kate Greenaway, (a popular 19th century artist) is the British equivalent to our Caldecott Medal– for distinguished illustration of a children’s book. There are many fine books to be discovered on these winners lists.
