75 Years of the Caldecott

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the Caldecott Award. (1938-2013). I have to admit, this is my FAVORITE children's book award!The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children.

Stop by the Children's Room at the library and check out a Caldecott Medal or Honor book from one of the many books we have on display. We've also got a quiz too! See if you can match an illustration to the title of a book from recent medal and honor books. Complete the quiz then turn it in to the children's desk to be entered into a darwing to win a fabulous prize. The last day to turn in completed quizes is October 29th.

So come celebrate 75 years of the Caldecott Award at the library!
