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?

I think what you said was actually very logical. However,
what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome headline?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog,
however suppose you added a headline that makes people desire more?
I mean Caldecott Medal 2012 is kinda boring. You should glance
at Yahoo's front page and see how they create post titles to grab people to click.
You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to
get people excited about everything've got to say. In
my opinion, it would make your website a little
bit more interesting. commented on 19-Mar-2014 09:21 PM

The voicemail feature is not present which further reduces the operating costs involved in the network.
It would cost phone system call center too much money, either,
on specialists, especially if you're running
a business out of your way to using this new technology.
Hence, Voip phone are the need of people for perfect telecommunicationdevices and services,
many service providers are aware of their critical roles, and to share a single phone call.
The system efficiently manages multiple calls with great competence and thereby provides the callers with a recorded message.
