This is darling! I think it's definitely more for the love of librarians and book-ish parents, but kids might enjoy it, too. It certainly is trying for kids to like it, but.... will they care?

I never knew anything about Newbery beyond the shiny sticker that appears on children’s books. The telling is lively and entertaining, and the illustrations and graphic design are totally engaging. Learning how the field of children’s literature came to be is fascinating. This book is everything a children’s book should be! Newbery would have loved it!
