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?

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal.
I must say you have done a superb job with this.
In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on
Chrome. Exceptional Blog!

Anytime your kids want to join an online site, be sure you review it in advance.
Buying the best console to play a game on
is actually a tough decision to create. Do not just toss away your old video games.
Megapolis Hack commented on 24-Apr-2014 07:35 PM
Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre
talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your
blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you ought to write
more on this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people don't discuss such issues.
To the next! Kind regards!!

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.
