This blog is dedicated to the Caldecott Award and strives to give you the tools to 'guess' what book the Caldecott Committee will award the honor to next year. In addition, we'd encourage you to let this blog be your window into the world of Beautiful Books for children published this year.
We'd love to hear how you're using these Beautiful Books with children.
Are you planning to read a book from this blog to your class on the first day of school?
Did you develop a great craft project to go along with a book from this list?
What about these books really grabbed your students' or child's attention?
Did you make up a rhyme or game to use with a story?
When really great books get into the hands, hearts, and lives of children we're all part of the award!
