Newberry Medal Winners 1922-Present

The Newbery Medal was named for eighteenth-century British bookseller John Newbery. It is awarded annually by the American Library Association to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Whether as an adult or a young reader, these are literature classics to immerse yourself. 

While we list only the annual winners, each year includes honor books including many of our all-time favorites. You can see the full honors list here. We're happy to help you build your library of winners and honorees!

Please note we show a single edition of the winner, usually the paperback edition with the exception of current winners that may be available in hardcover only. Some titles we list as a paperback edition may also be available in a hardcover edition. On the book's detailed page, scroll to review Related Editions. We encourage you to contact us so we can help you identify the right edition of the book you desire.
