2012 Caldecott Medal Announced

Each year the American Library Association awards a Caldecott Medal to the best illustrated children's book published the previous year.  This year's winner is A BALL FOR DAISY by Chris Raschka.  The story unfolds visually as there are no words!  This week I shared the book with students in kindergarten through fifth grade.  I enjoyed them telling the story aloud page by page or just watching it using their imaginations and ahhing and oohing in all the right places. 
A beautiful book for kids of all ages and for dog lovers.  Congratulations to Chris Raschka on his second well deserved Caldecott medal.
