Caldecott Medal 2012

Angela Morris - Monday, February 13, 2012
  A couple weeks ago I wrote about the 2012 winners of the Newbery Medal which is an award for excellence in chapter books. This week I wanted to give you the titles of the Caldecott Medal winner and honors that were announced in January. Remember, this award is given for “excellence of execution of artistic technique, interpretation of story/theme/concepts, appropriateness of style, and excellence of presentation for a child audience”. In other words, it is an award given for a book that is superior in how well the illustrations help tell the story, the art quality is of the highest standard and it is pleasing to the eye of a child. Think how hard it would be to make a decision! – there are so many wonderful books published every year.

The winner of the Caldecott Medal is “A Ball for Daisy” by Chris Raschka. The Caldecott committee says it is the story “of an irrepressible little dog whose most prized possession is accidentally destroyed”. The colors and illustrations are bright and bold and in a very kid-like style.

The first honor book is “Blackout” by John Rocco. It takes place in a large city where the electricity goes out one night – see people's first reactions and then find out how they cope. This link will take you to the author's website to view his Book trailer – very interesting.

The second honor book is “Grandpa Green” by Lane Smith. I love the whimsical illustrations in this book.

The third honor book is “Me....Jane” by Patrick McDonnell. This is a story about a young Jane Goodall – and the beginnings of her love for chimpanzees.

North Central Regional Library has all of these books in our collection, so what are you waiting for?

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod's strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first coment (it was
super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what
I had written
and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog
blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have
any ttips for
rookie blog writers? I'd really
appreciate it.

I think that everything said was actually very logical.
However, what about this? suppose you added a little information?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something that grabbed folk's attention?
I mean Caldecott Medal 2012 is a little boring. You might look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news headlines to get
people to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or
two to grab readers excited about everything've
got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

I tend not to comment, however I browsed a few of the comments on this
page Caldecott Medal 2012. I do have a couple of
questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me or do a few of these remarks
coje across like they aree left by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if yyou are posting on other social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you

I think that everything composed made a bunch of sense.
However, think on this, suppose you added a little content?
I ain't saying your information is not good., but what if you added a headline
that grabbed people's attention? I mean Caldecott Medal 2012 is a little vanilla.
You might glance at Yahoo's home page and note how they create post titles to get viewers to open the links.
You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything've
written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

Hello your
website url: appears
to be redirecting to a completely different
webpage when I click the home-page link.
You may want to have this checked.

Right now it appears like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you're using on
your blog? commented on 10-May-2014 11:09 PM
This text is priceless. How can I find out more? commented on 12-May-2014 08:56 AM
Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from
someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

there! I just wanted to assk if yyou ever have any
trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked
and I ended up
losing a few months of hard work ddue to no
data backup. Do yoou have any solutions to protect
against hackers? commented on 12-May-2014 12:24 PM
First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that
I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
I've had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure
out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

want to affiliate physical products, then you'd want to probably work with Amazon or.

As with any online marketing activity, keep the message short,
sweet and direct and be sure to include the necessary contact information
needed to send in a referral. On the other hand, someone driving a car who sees a billboard,
will at best be interested and might decide to get more information at some time.

Pretty great post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and wished to mention
that I've really loved surfing around your weblog posts.

In any case I will be subscribing in your rss feed and I'm hoping you write once more very soon!

I do not leave a lot of comments, but i did some searching and wound up
here Caldecott Medal 2012. And I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Is it only me or does it look like some of the responses look like
written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything
new you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls
of all your shared pages like your Facebook page,
twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at
options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good
