The first Notes issue of the new year is here! We asked eight people-in-the-know what they think (or just desperately hope) might win the Newbery and Caldecott Medals. Also in this issue:
• around the world in four new picture books
• reread-worthy easy readers
• nonfiction about scientists and their work
• YA novels on audio
