Corner: The latest kids' books to win the Coretta Scott King Awards

Celebrate Black History Month by reading the latest winners of the Coretta Scott King Awards, given annually to the best children's books written and illustrated by African-Americans.
Created in 1970, the Coretta Scott King Awards are named for the late wife of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and are designed to highlight the best children's books created each year by African-American authors and artists. The awards are sponsored by the American Library Association, and the winning books are chosen annually by a group of librarians and children's-book experts.
