On Monday, January 28, 2019, members of the American Library Association announced the Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, and numerous other book awards for children’s and young adult literature, collectively called the ALA Youth Media Awards. The posters/images shared in this post, created by Nikki Gregerson, feature many of the winning titles primarily for an elementary-age audience. The posters can be printed and hung in school libraries or classrooms (click here to download a high-quality printable file), or the images can be reposted on school or library websites, social media, etc. (right-click on images and save to re-use on the web.)
