"It’s become a tradition. The Tuesday after the Newbery/Caldecott Awards are announced, the winners, along with the YALSA or ALA president, are guests on the Today Show."

Erin Stead of Ann Arbor, Michigan won the Caldecott Award  A Sick Day for Amos McGee (Roaring Brook, 2010) while the Newbery went to Clare Vanderpool for Moon over Manifest (Delacorte, 2010) from Wichita, KS. Both are debut titles and the publishers found they had no copies of Moon over Manifest to fill the orders that started flooding in.
