Books on Film: A Brief History of Newbery/Caldecott on the Today Show
Looking for something to fill the void left when the Today Show failed to interview the 2012 Newbery and Caldecott winners? This one’s for you.

After searching high and low, I was able to come up with four instances.
2010: Rebecca Stead and Jerry Pinkney
2009: Neil Gaiman and Beth Krommes
2008: Laura Amy Schlitz and Brian Selznick
2005: Cynthia Kadohata and Kevin Henkes
