In the United States, the John Newbery Medal is the most prestigious children's book award that an author can receive. The Newbery Medal is an annual children's book award administered by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) of the American Library Association (ALA). It is presented "to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children published in English in the United States during the preceding year." The John Newbery Medal, commonly referred to as the Newbery, has been awarded every year since 1922. It is named for John Newbery, an eighteenth-century British bookseller.

All books are located in the Juvenile section unless otherwise indicated.
