Logo - 75th Anniversary of the Randolph Caldecott MedalDid you know that the American Library Association is in the middle of a big celebration? Join the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Caldecott Medal for picture book illustration. How? Celebrate by sharing many of the award-winning books with your children, from A Ball for Daisy, last year's winner, to Where the Wild Things Are, which won in 1964 and has become a classic, to the very first book to be recognized. Where can you find out information about the winners and when they won? I just finished a list for you, 75 Years of Randolph Caldecott Medal Winners, and linked to related articles and reviews. As I review more of the books, I'll add the links to the list. I'll add the 2013 Caldecott Medal winner on Monday when the announcement is made.
