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?

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

I don't comment, but after reading through a few of the comments on this page Caldecott Medal 2012. I actually do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be just me or do some of the comments look like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
