The Newbery Medal, awarded to the most outstanding children's book each year, will go to ''Dear Mr. Henshaw'' (Morrow), by Beverly Cleary. The Caldecott Medal , honoring the most distinguished American picture book of the year, will go to illustrators Alice Provenson and Martin Provenson for ''Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot'' (Viking).
