Boston Globe Horn Book Awards
First presented in 1967, the Boston Globe Horn Book Awards are given annually to winners in three categories: Picture Book, Fiction and Poetry, and Nonfiction.  The 2002 winners are featured here; past winners are on separate pages, organized by decade.  Best clicks are on the Parents' Page, where you'll find Children's Classics (a reading list in PDF for ease of printing) and printable book plates to adorn your own library of books.  For a fun look at the history of book plates, read "Where do Book Plates Come From?"

Database of Award-Winning Children's Literature
This compendium of 3,686 award-winning books, created by reference librarian Lisa Bartle, has an extensive search function that makes it easy to find a good  read.  Enter your age, gender preference, favorite genre, desired historical period, preferred setting, and even a keyword or phrase, and press "Search."   Results include winners from more than thirty different awards.  See "Explanation of Awards" for the complete list with links to each award-giving organization.

Newbery Medal
The Newbery Medal, named for eighteenth-century British bookseller John Newbery, is awarded annually to "the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children."  It is one of several awards given by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association.  Instituted in 1922, the Newbery Medal  was the world's first children's book award, and is probably the most well-known.

Welcome to the Caldecott Medal Home Page!
The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children.

Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties
Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties, compiled and edited by Charles J. Kappler, is an historically significant, seven volume compilation of U.S. treaties, laws and executive orders pertaining to Native American Indian tribes. The volumes cover U.S. Government treaties with Native Americans from 1778-1883 (Volume II) and U.S. laws and executive orders concerning Native Americans from 1871-1970 (Volumes I, III-VII). The work was first published in 1903-04 by the U.S. Government Printing Office. Enhanced by the editors' use of margin notations and a comprehensive index, the information contained in Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties is in high demand by Native peoples, researchers, journalists, attorneys, legislators, teachers and others of both Native and non-Native origins.

The Burke Museum
The Burke Museum, located on the campus of the University of Washington in Seattle Washington, is the State museum of natural and cultural history, and the only major natural history museum in the Northwest. It's a treasure trove of natural and artistic wonders from the Pacific Northwest and the Pacific Rim. Collection highlights include towering totem poles and huge, hand carved cedar canoes; the region's only dinosaur skeleton; beautiful gems and minerals; fascinating fossils; birds, beetles, and butterflies. The four divisions of Anthropology, Geology, and Zoology and Botany contain nationally ranked collections totaling more than 5 million specimens.
