The latest winners of the oldest and most prestigious awards for children's books - the Caldecott Award and the Newbery Medal - were announced on 2nd February 2015. The 2015 Caldecott Award was won by Dan Santat, the illustrator and writer of The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend. This is a picture book about friendship and courage.

Eventually, fed up with waiting, he heads off on a courageous and emotional journey to the city to find his own human. Read more here about previous winners of the Caldecott Award, including our all-time top favourites. The Crossover by Kwame Alexander was the winner of the 2015 Newbery Medal. It is about two 12-year-old African American twin boys who are basketball stars, coached by their father, a former professional basketball player, and supported by their mother, the assistant-principal. When an attractive girl arrives on the scene, the brothers begin the painful process of moving apart for the first time. This novel, suitable for readers aged 11 and over, is written in verse with quirky vocabulary adding an amusing touch to the narrative.

- Book and Toy Gift Ideason November 27, 2014 at 10:48 pm
Can't think what to give your little ones for Christmas? I love to give books as presents to the special children in my life, and often I try to go one step further and pair a book or two with a similarly themed toy to create an educational book and toy gift combination. The toy helps to spark the child's interest in a new subject and then, when they are captivated enough to want to find out more, they can turn to the book to extend their knowledge. Here you can find some of my favourite book and toy gift ideas for children. In each case I have suggested two books in addition to a toy which perfectly compliments the book choices.
