Newbery Medal Winners 1922-2013

Every year since 1922 the American Library Association has given this award to "The most distinguished American children's book published the previous year." According to Frederic G. Melcher, who first proposed the award, its purpose is: "To encourage original creative work in the field of books for children. To emphasize to the public that contributions to the literature for children deserve similar recognition to poetry, plays, or novels. To give those librarians, who make it their life work to serve children's reading interests, an opportunity to encourage good writing in this field."
