The Simon Lawrence Library at St Andrews International School Bangkok would like to recommend the most recent award-winning books of the Newbery Award which are available in the Library.

Please feel free to come pick up the any of the world-renowned books to enjoy. For your information, the Newbery Medal was named after the eighteenth-century English bookseller John Newbery by the American Library Association (ALA) and became the first children's book award in the world. Today, the Medal is administered by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of ALA. The Newbery Medal is awarded annually by the ALA for the most distinguished American children's book published the previous year. Its terms, as well as its long history, continue to make it the best known and most discussed children's book award in the US.
