Children's books/ YA books
I am researching which book(s) to get for my nieces and nephews (age range 3-13) and was wondering which books would be good for them.
I know about the Newbery award and the Caldecott Award. Is there a similar award for YA adults? And what is the age range for it to be a YA book? Is 12-13 too young or are they part of that group nowadays?
The kids in question are typical kids - neither particularly mature/worldly or immature. Just average all-around kids.
Any recommendations would be appreciated very much as I don't have kids and all the kids' books look good to me (even though I am sure that quality varies). I'd like the voice of experienced parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles please to help if possible.
